The Clear Lake softball team is gaining experience and confidence as the season progresses. The Lions picked up their second win of the season Saturday, topping Rockford 11-8 at the Mason City Tournament. Their record is now 2-7.
“Overall, we are playing much better in all aspects of the game,” said Coach Nikki Petersburg. “Our younger players are getting more experience and confidence and our returners from last year are really becoming leaders. We have even more games next week than we did this past week. However, we look to not let the other team dictate how we play. Win or lose we aim to do so with dignity and pride in our effort.”
