The Holmes Girls' Fastpitch Softball Team had multiple objectives coming into the 2017 season, established from the first non-mandatory practice in September, by new Head Coach John Ellis. Good grades, discipline, and learning how to play the game the right way are a few of those main objectives.
As a team, the girls' GPA is above a 3.4 and the players proudly hold their head high representing Holmes High School. The third objective is also coming along just fine with solid team play.
With a record of 7 wins and 7 losses, the Lady Bulldogs have eclipsed their win total of last year by 4 games while using 8 fewer games to get there. "The girls have worked hard to learn how to play each facet of the game correctly. That equals competitiveness which in turn equals wins," said Coach Ellis.
Assistant coaches Don Cooper and Jim Huhn have been key factors in this team's growing success. "They have their hands in a little bit of everything which helps us give the girls more attention on the field for development," added Ellis.
The Lady Bulldogs play the Beechwood Tigers at Glenn O. Swing, Tuesday 5/9 at 5 p.m. They travel to Highlands on Thursday 5/11 and Villa Madonna Monday 5/15. They return home to play St. Henry on Tuesday 5/16 and Covington Latin for Senior Night Thursday 5/18.
Come out and support the Lady Bulldogs!
