Featured Athlete: Andrea Leiken

Running is an important aspect of many of today’s most popular sports. However, running is not the sole goal, it is just the means of getting the ball or running to home.

Logger softball has been very underclassmen-oriented the last couple of years, but it is finally time for a mature, veteran team to step onto the field in an attempt to finish atop the Northwest Conference when the dust settles at the end of April.
