HERKIMER – Coming into the new week and staring down a Monday tournament – already at 1-0 following a Saturday, April 1, win over Chenango Valley – the Bainbridge-Guilford varsity softball team was looking to turn some heads.
They did just that and more with a 2-0 outing at the Kris Haver Memorial Tournament at the Mudville Complex in Herkimer on Monday April, 3.
“I thought we’d be competitive. I wasn’t expecting us to win both those games, especially against Poland,” said Bainbridge-Guilford head coach Randy Palmatier. “I am really proud of them (B-G), the guy that runs Mudville was shocked that we won the tournament. We are pretty excited.”
The lady Bobcats were afforded no time to settle in at the tournament – as coach Palmatier said they were forced to jump right off the bus and into the action.
With a slew of solid competition awaiting – Poland, Canastota, and Mayfield – one would think playing essentially without warmups would be detrimental to the outcome.
