Bremerton softball | Spring Sports Preview

Head coach: Darrell Clauson

2017 record: 0-13

Top returning players: Divinity Dodge, senior; Grace Kruger, senior.

Key newcomers: Mia Falotico, freshman; Kaylee Bullard, freshman

Outlook: The Knights went without a win last year. To make it even more difficult, Bremerton lost five seniors to graduation and a couple of athletes who transferred. But the softball team has already improved from last year by earning a 10-0 shutout win against Evergreen. Head coach Darrell Clauson, who has an extensive background in coaching fastpitch said he just wants a group that has been counted out for a long time to have a chance to feel successful. He said the 0-13 record may look bad on paper, but by the end of last year, the team was learning and becoming competitive. “This year, we are going to continue to have struggles, but we are working very hard to continue to be competitive in our games,” he said. “We have to believe.”
