Veteran East Webster softball coach Lee Berryhill thinks he might have a good team this year.
He just hasn’t been on the field to find out yet.
Due to wet weather and sloppy field conditions, Berryhill said there are still a lot of unknowns in this year’s squad at East Webster.
Eupora baseball coach Cole McBride will have his hands full in his first season with the Eagles.
The Eagles will enter the season with no seniors on the squad, one junior and 12 sophomores, and no freshmen on the roster.
The Eupora Lady Eagles made an impressive run though their regular-season schedule last year, only to be upended in the first-round of the playoffs to eventual North 2A champion Lake.
If the Lady Eagles are going to make another run, they will do it with some new faces on the field.
East Webster basketball coach Jon Ginn knew both of his basketball teams had tough draws in the first round of the Class 2A playoffs.
