Better and better
In just its third softball season, Saginaw Chisholm Trail has 12 retuning players and is on pace to have its best season yet.
The Rangers (15-6, 5-2 District 5-5A) have made the playoffs in their previous two seasons, but they lost in the first round both times. This season, they are 4-1 in games decided by two runs or less.
Despite being loaded with experienced players, freshman Lexi White is leading the team. She's among the best pitchers in the area at 4-0 and with a 1.09 ERA. She also starts at shortstop.
"She's held her own in the batting order with a .379 on-base percentage," coach Calvin Wright said. "On the mound, she has great movement on her off-speed pitches and gets a lot of weak-hit ground balls. We fully anticipate her to eat up a lot of innings in the future."
