Softball The Agates softball team is 8-5 after a busy week on the field.

The girls played four games on Friday and Saturday, after spending Friday morning removing water from the field. Coach Chris Lemke said the girls spent hours hauling wheelbarrow loads and buckets full of water off the field to get it ready for play.


It was a good call for them – they added three wins to their record during the streak of games over the weekend.
