- Yesterday was the first day of practice for high school softball teams. And despite winning a share of the conference title last year, the Hodags have a new head coach.She is former Three Lakes assistant coach Amanda Jorata. She takes over for Elmer Suess who retired. He was involved with Hodag softball for 22 years.After getting hired in December, coach Jorata is ready to take over. Three Lakes won the Northern Lakes Conference titles in her 2 years there as an assistant.
There is a little bit of adjusting for the coach as well as the players. But a common language both have - winning expectations.
