BOARDMAN OH- Boardman Softball is in the middle of an upswing. Coming off a 19 win season a year ago, bright skies were ahead for a fairly young Spartans team. Unfortunately the COVID-19 pandemic has halted the 2020 season. Still the spirits are high in Boardman as head coach Fred Mootz preaches that no matter when they get back on the field, they need to be ready. Boardman finds themselves with just one senior on the roster. That might seem like an easy rebuild from the outside, but when that senior caught every game for the Spartans a year ago, replacing that leadership will be tough.
Anthony Hartwig charged with Coach Mootz this week in a video conference call. They discuss the youth of the team, the tough schedule they were ready to play this season, and much more. Stay updated on Spartans softball with Episode 1 of Coach’s Corner with Fred Mootz.
