Once again, another preseason has come to an end and we are in official Spring training. I know many of the players have other promised commitments to basketball, musical and spring break. I expect them to honor those commitments and to come to practice if they can while balancing studies, work, etc. Please let us know that you are interested in playing as soon as you can. We are all excited to see what this season will bring. First meeting will be at the SPARC 5-6 Wed the 27th. Rides will be available in the lower HHS parking lot starting at 4:15. Soft soled shoes and waiver filled out on line please.
There will be a PreSeason meeting for Parents and Players to talk about the upcoming season on February 13, HHS Library 6pm. We will go over the season, introduce coaches and volunteers, outline jobs we need help with, discuss expectations, answer questions, etc. This will be a new experience for us to have an early Parent meeting but we are hoping to get more support and involvement. We would ask the players to download the 2019 information sheet from the “Team Information” page. We will discuss field maintenance, umpiring, travel, fundraising and anything else that comes to mind. You may call us ahead of time for questions
Starting Classes to train paid umpires for the High School Season. You can learn a new skill or brush up old techniques. Will start on Monday, February 18th and run at least three Mondays, 6:30pm-8pm. Plan on Field work in April, once the fields are better and then start the season April 23rd. Previous baseball / softball experience is helpful but not necessary. Call Bill at Three nine nine one zero four two.
February 27th is the first official day of practice. I am anticipating we will be in the SPARC that day and weekly for a month, in addition to the daily practices at the High School I would like to have a pre-Season parent and Player meeting in mid February. Please have your physicals and consents ready for the first day. Still time to joins us at the dome on Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday to get an early jump.

What a great season from this wonderful group of ladies. So supportive of each other, so dedicated to playing and improving themselves, so resilient for all we have dealt with. It has been an honor to be associated with this team and I thank you for that opportunity. Next year plans are already swirling in our minds
It has been a joy and a thrill to be with these ladies on this adventure so far. They have a loyal following from parents and fans but have had to play in obscurity from the local media. Undeterred, they sailed through their conference again ( champion how many times I can not tell you as I lost some years from my records ) but are headed to State for the 17th time in 18 years. Ask any other HHS team to do that! They are a remarkable group, no matter what position or role they play. On to Fairbanks.

What a Great End to the Regular season. FOr the Second year in a row the Varsity finishes 8-0 in regular season in preparation for going to Regions. The JV has a great season with their final Double header against Houston. So much growth from this young team as they stepped up game after game and supported each other unfailingly. What a pleasure to spend three intense months with them. Thank you. On to Regions.
