Weather mucks spring season openers

Grangeville’s softball squad got some work outdoors on Monday, March 13, when Hayley Fishback — who has coached softball clinics as well as the Clearwater Valley girls team in the recent past — delivered a hitting clinic at Lions Park. Clearwater Valley doesn’t have a softball team this spring, and Kamiah is in cooperatives with Nezperce for both baseball and softball. Regular seasons across the area had been scheduled to open last week, but because many fields are still quite muddy, Tuesday, March 14, marked most starts.

Grangeville’s softball squad got some work outdoors on Monday, March 13, when Hayley Fishback — who has coached softball clinics as well as the Clearwater Valley girls team in the recent past — delivered a hitting clinic at Lions Park. Clearwater Valley doesn’t have a softball team this spring, and Kamiah is in cooperatives with Nezperce for both baseball and softball. Regular seasons across the area had been scheduled to open last week, but because many fields are still quite muddy, Tuesday, March 14, marked most starts.



While the Grangeville softball girls participated in a hitting clinic on their practice field Monday, March 13, the tennis squad held court at the school and the baseball team practiced in the outfield beyond their dirt infield, which remains muddy on account of snow that melted only recently.

Wet weather scrubbed the first baseball game, which had been booked for March 10. It was rebooked for March 14 at Clearwater Valley High School, and though an overnight rain doused Grangeville, baseball season began on Tuesday.

The Monday night storm washed out the tennis opener at Orofino, which was reset for this Thursday, March 16.

Kamiah was due to host Potlatch on March 13, but that was cancelled for an unplayable field.

More schedule changes are sure to come this spring, and the GHS schedules are being kept up-to-date online at

ghsathletics.org.

Area teams’ track and field schedules are maintained through athletic.net.
