It had been more than a week since head coach Chris Weide and his Fillies softball team had taken the field.
Sure, they had tried. On Friday, they made it all of the way to the coaches meeting with the umpires prior to the first game of their series versus Chanute before having to huddle in the confines of the concrete football stadium due to a sudden downpour of rain.
That deluge ruined the field and canceled the game for the Fillies but the bonding experience from team members being stuck in the stadium while waiting out the worst of the rain, maybe proved to be just as valuable as the games.
