Monday marked the opening day of practice for softball teams around the county and state. The soggy weather couldn’t deter the Crawfordsville Lady Athenians. They just hit the artificial football turf to get their first practice in. Pictured above, Crawfordsville senior Cali Saunders leads an infield drill with a quick toss to make the play.
