WEST FARGO â€” When Enderlin/Maple Valley coach Neva Hamre was asked about a few of her players following Friday's 25-4 win over Grafton in the Class B State Semifinals, she was at a loss for words.
"I just don't really know what to say about them," she said. "We're just â€” I don't know â€” it doesn't seem hard. We're just doing what we do."
What they do, and continued to do at the second day of the inaugural Class B State Softball Tournament, is win.
WEST FARGO â€” All season long, Enderlin/Maple Valley softball coach Neva Hamre knew her top two pitchers were sophomore Kaylee Johnson and junior Cassie Pautz. But with the success Johnson had throughout the season, Pautz didnâ€™t log a single pitch at the varsity level.
Until Thursday, that was, when she took to the circle in the Falconsâ€™ 18-2 win over Pembina County North to open the Class B state softball tournament at Elmwood Park in West Fargo.
â€śI only pitched two JV games, so it was a little nerve wracking,â€ť Pautz said.
