This year, LHS softball tryouts went from Feb. 25-28. First practice will be the Saturday after tryouts, March 5, and every Saturday after that.
This season’s varsity team will start with a game against Coeur d’ Alene at 2 pm on March 22.
Kristen Delp is entering her 6th year as the softball coach at LHS and is hoping to lead the team into a winning season,
“We have a great group of seniors and a lot of young talent coming up,” Delp said. “[I’m] hoping for a chance at state this year!”
She is very excited for this season and hopes they will do their best. Last year they won their first game against Timberlake, 12-2, and the game after that, they won a doubleheader against Lake City with their first game 3-0 and second 10-0.
Delp has more help this year with varsity and junior varsity. This season, Randy Foster, Shawnee Zink, Alisha Alexander, and Cyrina Lockart are the other softball coaches with Delp.
LHS varsity will play Moscow April 5; Post falls April 9, and Lake City April 16, all at airport park. The whole season schedule can be found at lewistonathletics.com.
