Former, current players square off
The North Idaho College softball team beat the NIC alumni team 3-1 Saturday at Memorial Field.
“We were really excited to get back on the field and play against people we knew and haven’t seen in a long time,” Shay Craig, a member of the alumni team and current assistant coach of the Cardinals, said.
It was the 17th time the alumni game has been played and it was definitely a sight to see.
Both teams caught line drives off the opponents’ bats to halt scoring threats.
Erratic throws was the deciding factor in the game.
“I don’t think we really earned a run,” NIC head coach Don Don Williams said.
In the end, the current players proved to be a little sharper than the former Cardinal players.
“I thought it was a lot of fun,” sophomore Kylene Hatton said. “Hunter (Allen) pitched a good game and Jammie (Madonna) had a clutch hit.”
