Weather and busy end-of-school-year schedules made a JV tournament too hard to pull off, but the players gained valuable experience in the season.One win in particular stood out, Bragdon said; the game against Brewer. “The girls hit really well. Our pitcher Karli Wilson and catcher Alicia Wilson worked well together, and our fielding was fantastic.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textBragdon works with her teams to set individual and team goals for the season and evaluate progress toward them.“Our goal as a team was to work more cohesively as a group,” she said. “After working a lot on communication and fielding, we were able to successfully complete double plays almost every game.”“The most common individual goal on the team was to become a better hitter. Slowly all of the girls developed their skills through soft toss and batting cage drills. All of them had significant hits during at least one game, frequently in the form of a double or a triple. The girls also really worked on their ability to run the bases, so we had a lot of RBIs.”Find in-depth coverage of local news in the Mount Desert Islander. Subscribe digitally or in print.
