“Playing for Altoona has impacted my life from making lots of new friends to learning so many new things that I know I will definitely use in my softball career,” eighth grade player Kendra Houp said.

The Altoona Area Junior High School’s girls’ softball team has a current record of three wins and seven losses.  Girls in seventh and eighth grade play for the junior high team, and girls in ninth grade may play for the high school team. The softball season runs from February to May, with three or four practices each week as well as open gyms.

There is at least one game a week; home games are played at Logan Elementary School and the team also travels to away games. The seventh and eighth grade team is coached by Stevie Delozier and Meghan Hall.

    It sounds like they did good but have a few things to fix. They should try to fix them before next season. I hope they do better next season.
