MANSON VS Liberty Bell

Score: 0-21

The Lady’s Trojans had a strong start in their league opener against Liberty Bell. Kristen Gibson had the start at the mound. She held LB for an inning and a half with no hits or runs and two strike outs. Defensively, Ally Paige, first baseman had two unassisted put-outs in the first two innings.

The Lady Trojans battled to stay in the game but with some hard hitting long shots from Liberty Bell, the game quickly got away from the Trojans. The game ended in three innings with LB taking the win 21-0.

Our defense and offense continues to improve as we head back to a week of practice and prepare for our next game.

Next home game is Saturday, April 19 –a double header against Lake Roosevelt beginning at 11:00 a.m. at Singleton Park in Manson.

manson trojans logoOur league has been finalized for the next two years.  With all the options that were on the table I was excited by the way it turned out.  We will have some stiff competition, however we will not be driving as far south as we have in the past. 

CWB North League

MANSON

Oroville

Tonasket

Okanogan

Liberty Bell

Brewster

Bridgeport

Lake Roosevelt (Will be in the south for football)

CWB South League

Kittitas

Mabton

Soap Lake

Waterville (will play football at the 1B level)

White Swan

Warden

We would only play the teams in the north.  If we played a team from the south it would be a non-league game.  Schedules are forming and fall schedules will be out soon.  In most sports we will have more league games then we had in the past 2 year cycle so we will play less non-league games.
