LA CYGNE — Every game is a learning opportunity for Chris Weide’s Iola High Fillies.
The first-year softball coach challenged his group — which faced a 9-0 deficit in the bottom of the fourth — to simply stay in the game against Prairie View on Tuesday.
“That is what we did,” Weide said. “We challenged them in the bottom of the fourth and told them that we are going to play seven innings. We had to play defense and have each other’s back.”
