There is still time to register for the 2016 girls Softball season. Minor league softball is for girls born in 2005 & 2006, Major league 2003 & 2004, and Junior league 2001 & 2002. Even if you are new to the game of softball, we would encourage you to sign up. Practices start after spring break and the season goes until the end of school. Registrations forms are available at the school offices or can be picked up at the baseball/softball registration table at the Chili Dinner Fundraiser next Wednesday night at the MS cafeteria from 5-7pm. Forms can be turned in there or can also be mailed in to the league. If you have any questions, please call or text Jana Goldsmith at 330-1633.
