  • Cannelton girls team features...

    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.

    But the Bulldogs lack experience and depth at the position that often dominates fastpitch softball—pitcher.

    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.
