The team joins up for a group huddle.

This week head coach of the Waterville/Mansfield Shockers Girls’ softball team said about their three wins, one win over the Lake Roosevelt Raiders, a top ranked team, and the two wins over the Pateros Nannies, “The girls played their hearts out. Their offense and defense showed up with solid play.”
