Tomahawk softball focuses on a new path to the state tournament
TOMAHAWK - At this time last year, the Tomahawk softball team hadn't played a single game.

Well they've hit the diamond three times this year but without the five seniors from last season's state bound team.

Pitching has always been Tomahawk's strong suit - but this year they have a different approach.

"A different year, a different team but the goals stay the same," said Tomahawk head softball coach John Larson.

Tomahawk softball broke a 35-year state drought last season But this year they want to bring home a golden ball. 

"There's definitely things that we can focus on this year to get us to that point again, but come out on top," said senior catcher Katy Volz.


Their main focus it hitting and throwing.

"We have developed so much with our hitting - that's been a big part of our team and as coach always says, the team who throws and catches is the team that will win," said senior outfielder Whitney Osero.

The eight seniors on the team want to make sure their record will reflect the hard work.

"We've really learned to trust each other on and off the field and that's what helped us be successful," Volz said.

Trust isn't the only thing that has pushed this team forward.

Larson says their success last year was much needed for the program.

"The state experience really changed our team culture," Larson said. "It took us over the top and got a lot of people excited about playing softball at Tomahawk high school. We have every reason to believe that we will make it back down to Madison."

Tomahawk has two GNC games scheduled for next week. However, Coach Larson doesn't expect the softball fields in the Northwoods to be playable for at least ten days or so.
