Former Yosemite High School softball coaches Suzette Combs and Tami Franke put together Yosemite Blaze, an all mountain 14-and-under girls softball travel team consisting of players from fifth through eighth grade.
The team recently played in its first of six NSA “A” tournaments in Madera, winning three games and losing two. They competed with six other teams who have been together for many years and travel to tournaments every weekend.
YHS varsity players, Lynette Combs and Katie Thompson are helping with the team.
Combs is coaching the younger players in hitting and fielding as her senior project, and Thompson is helping with catching.
Next Year as YHS seniors, Thompson and Courtney Herrera plan to help coach the 14-under Yosemite Blaze fall team for their senior project.
Anyone interested in playing for Yosemite Blaze are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
