[The Super preparing the field?]

[I arrived late . . . yes, it was a previously scheduled eating event.  The game was in the bottom of the 4th and our Cards were losing to the Sauk Rapids-Rice Storm, 3 – 0.  I had not been to a game yet this year, so it was my first time at the new high school field.  It was very nice, but it was completely surrounded by chain link fencing, the number one bane of the photographer.  I got my bearings, then shot Kaila Dewanz, senior infielder/pitcher (and hockey player).]

[Nope, don’t like that one.]

[Ms. Dropik, a known power hitter, hit a shot but right at the rightfielder.]

[Ellie Ronning, sophomore infielder, hit a nice line single to center here scoring Emma Ziegler, sophomore shortstop (and basketball), from 3rd.  The Cards rallied with 2-run innings in the 4th, 5th, and 6th, that potentially could have been much more.]

5-20-15-14 - Copy

[Anna Lee, senior outfielder (and soccer and backetball)?  Guessing ‘cuz I can’t see her number.]

5-20-15-15 - Copy

[Yay for us!  I didn’t get much coverage due to my late arrival.  Then a Storm dad dropped by to chat for a few innings – he had a daughter on the team, an 8th-grader, who was also the starting point guard on their basketball team.  I think I remember her.]

5-20-15-16 - Copy

[Jana Roste, senior outfielder, gives it a go.  I’ve noticed in previous game reports she’s been doing very well.]

[We win!  And an nice comeback at that.]

[I hope I’m available for the next game . . . ]
