(Ste. Genevieve) Softball season couldn’t come soon enough for the Valle Catholic Warriors. Head coach Kurt Basler says the girls have been preparing for the past few weeks but they want to face some new competition.

Basler says a couple of seniors will be looked upon to lead this Warriors squad.

But a new face could be in the circle for a multitude of games this season. Basler says freshman Abreeana Zipprich has been standing out in practice.

Basler is ready to move on from the 8-15 record of last season and build upon a new foundation this year.

Valle Catholic will begin their season on Monday against Park Hills in Ste. Genevieve.
