Email News Alerts

Dan Johnson has his work cut out for him as his Verndale Pirates gear up for their 2012 fastpitch softball season.

The Pirates will be short of experience with just two seniors in the lineup.


Jordy Schlutter and Tori Kern are the team's upperclassmen. Schlutter will play first base while Kern returns to the outfield.

Juniors back include shortstop-pitcher Teresa Moenkedick and outfielder Jackie Swenson. Moenkedick was one of Verndale's top two hitters last year.
