Warm Springs softball off to state


The Warm Springs Nation 9-10 year old girls softball team is the lone survivor of last week’s District 5 baseball and softball tournaments. At least as far as Jefferson County is concerned.

Warm Springs was the only local team that managed its way through a bracket and into a state tournament this year.

The team, coached by Virgil Windy Boy and Hulk Katchia, will start play Saturday in Salem.

The Warm Springs juniors placed second while the majors were third.

The state Senior/Junior girls fast pitch tournament will be held at Juniper Park in Madras starting on Saturday. Brackets were not finalized by press time Monday evening.
