The Schoolcraft softball team is picking up right where the girls basketball team left off, notching an 11-0 overall and a 6-0 conference record. “Our toughest opponent is Constantine,” said Coach Jason Porter. “They are an opponent that will push us for the conference championship. They are a well-coached team with a core returning senior squad. We look forward to playing Constantine and look forward to the challenges they will bring us to make us a better program.”
Leading the charge, as she did in basketball, is Lydia Goble, said Porter. “Lydia’s bat is on fire right now. Our seniors in the infield, Brooke Crissman at third, Goble at shortstop, Kennedy Leighton at second are awesome leaders and role models! I would say defensively they are very strong as a core group.”
“I see a very tough road in the month of May. We have some very tough tournaments and opponents that will hopefully push us to get better in time for district and regional play and a run at the state title. We play in the Wayland Invite, the Coopersville Invite and the Michigan Challenge in Canton, Michigan,” Porter said. He has coached softball at Comstock and Kalamazoo College where he is an assistant football coach. He is in his second season at Schoolcraft.
