Lampl returns to diamond after two years off
The one thing Carole Lampl missed most during her two-year absence from the softball diamond is running the bases. “It kind of sounds funny, but I really honestly missed base running,” said the Kodiak senior before Tuesday’s practice at East Addition Park. “I can get a base hit, but I really just like stealing bases. I’m good at it.” Lampl got a few chances to touch the bases last week when she played in her first...

The team spent the afternoon at coach Sam Catt’s house watching a recorded college softball game, complete with pizza, salad, fruit and soda. The food was just a bonus, though. “It is a bonding thing. It gives all the kids a chance to sit around and analyze parts of the game,” Catt said. “When we are in practice, we are always in such ...
