Come celebrate our four seniors and thank them for all those years of being a part of Mariner softball at our game May 17th at JGP. They are an amazing group with a bright future ahead of them.
Raffle give-away has started with the first winner Nathan F – #0935 for $100. There is still time to get your tickets with over $5000 yet to be distributed. Come one, Come all, Thanks for your generous support.
After 8 weeks of gym time, snow, sleet and muck, the season is upon us. Weather is nice and it will be game after game for the next month so Hang On, Have fun and cheer these wonderful women on as they bond, improve and turn into a very supportive machine. It is fun.
We have been on a field, seen the sun, played some games and learned a lot about ourselves: where we have been and especially where we have to go. We are excited to move aggressively into the future. We don’t know where it will take us but we do know that WE ARE THE MARINERS, and we couldn’t be prouder.
Congratulations to the Women’s basketball Team for finishing strong. It was great to watch you all working together, playing hard and not giving up. Way to come on strong during Regions. We look forward to building on that energy to take Softball forward.

In summarizing the season I forgot to mention that we had a 4-Peat, winning the Northern Lights Region Tournament for the fourth ( and every) year since it was initiated. Also added another Regular season conference win. Three players as First Team All Conference- Grace, Hannah and Zoe. One player to All State Tourney Team- Hayley and Grace making her second appearance on the All-West Region NFCA Second team honors as an Outfielder. All in all a very positive recovery from the disappointment of losing the 2020 season.
State Tournament- Beat North Pole in the first game of Pool Pay- winning 15-12. Next game of Pool play lost to Juneau 11-19 and were second in our pool. Opened Double elimination against Delta Huskies and won 13-4 . Next played Ketchikan and lost not only by a score of 10-12 but also lost our franchise Third baseman to an injury while pursuing a foul ball. Then played North Pole again, taking a 9 run lead into the last inning but seeing it evaporate in the heat of the day, our third game and new personnel. Lost in the extra inning Tie Breaker. Overall a very successful season with our new players, team work and growth.
