  • Cannelton girls team features strong infield

    CANNELTON—With seven letter winners and two talented freshmen who have played on summer all-star and travel teams, Cannelton has one of its most experienced girls softball teams.

    Sophomore Sammie James, who was the team’s No. 2 pitcher last year, is the only one this year.

    “We’re trying to develop another one,” said Cannelton Coach Brian Garrett.

     James went 0-4 for the 0-12 Bulldogs last year.

    Perry Central had five singles, by five different batters.
