Baseball and softball action begins tomorrow evening as the Vinton-Shellsburg Vikings host their traditional first opponent, East Marshall, in a double-header. The Vikettes also open their season at home, hosting West Delaware.
Hank Bratten officially begins his head coaching career with his first game as head coach. Bari Parrott continues to lead the Vikettes.
The Vikings are a young team, with only three seniors, Cole Overton, Mitch Bos and Blake Bohnsack.
The Vikettes return five seniors, including pitchers Alex Maynard and Rachel Tandy, and outfielder Elisabeth Davis-Walker, who has already signed with Wartburg to join its program next year. Davis-Walker led the Vikettes last year with a .367 batting average. She also led VS in hits, runs scored and doubles.
