TONASKET – The Tonasket softball team is hoping to improve more this season over last season, when they only won one game.

In his second year as head coach, Tim Cork, assisted by Gene Jones, said he is a fundamentals coach who is more of a teacher than a strategist.

With only 14 girls on the team this season, a small turnout, Cork said they are a young team with no seniors, three juniors and the rest are freshmen and sophomores. He said juniors Jessica Rhoads, Jayden Hawkins and Keyvanna Marthini along with sophomore Mackenzie Wheeler all are showing promise this season.

“I just hope we can continue to get better through the season,” Cork said. “I think we are better offensively this season that we were last season.”

Cork said the team’s main weakness this season is that they will be pitching a lot of freshmen.

To improve upon last year’s one-win season, Cork has a simply strategy: to make more plays than the other team.

“The highlight of last season was that we improved a lot from start to finish,” Cork said.”
