High School Softball: Iola Fillies
Tuesdays home split versus Anderson County made it clear to Iola softball head coach Chris Weide that his team needs more reps.
The Fillies waited 27 days to get back on the field in between their season opener at Chanute and Tuesday night. A team thats already loaded with underclassmen (18 of the 25 players are either sophomores or freshmen) needs more than anything to get back on the field and start to figure out the makeup of their team.
Now I guess it kind of feels like a preseason game, Weide said of the season opener at Chanute, It just happened so long ago and you could tell we were a little rusty but Anderson County hadnt played a ton either so they were in the same boat. Weve dealt with the same weather.
