Even though the Two Harbors U-16 softball team’s season ended in the playoffs this week, their coach can look back on the summer season as a success.
“We did some good things,” said Head Coach Tim Triggs. “I’m really proud.”
Triggs said for the majority of the team’s games this season they only had eight players.
Even with this challenge, the team certainly learned a few things this season.
Triggs believed repetition of hitters seeing pitchers, along with the other aspects of softball should help the Two Harbors High School team next spring.
“That’s what all of it’s really for,” Triggs said.
In the spring, the high school team beat Aitkin, who was 14-1 during the regular season, for the Agates first playoff win in team history.
In the first round of the U-16 playoffs, Two Harbors lost to the Red Corvettes of Duluth 8-1.
“We didn’t hit the ball real well,” Triggs said.
In their next game, in the loser’s bracket, they got shut out by Carlton.
