A shorthanded Bronson team, playing without starting pitcher Brittany Shipp (out with a knee injury), fell 13-0 to Trenton in the district tournament opener Monday.
Coach Kelly Watkins said the team played tough despite the loss of starters because of excellent play from the sixth graders, catcher Kelsey Russell and shortstop Crystal Short.
“We got some good play from our youngsters.”
Watkins says she is looking to bring stability to the team in the off-season. Watkins is the third varsity softball head coach at Bronson in the last three years.
