Friday Night Under the Lights


Girl's fastpitch softball returns to West Concord. The Venom High School Green team will be starting practice and has games scheduled for this summer. Their home games start with June 11th at 6pm vs Mankato. On July 2nd the team hosts W-E-M and on July 9th the team hosts Blue Earth. Troy Krenske is the coach for one more season . The team consists of high school age girls from many of the surrounding towns and gives the players a great time to build friendships with kids from other communities.

The Ten and Under team will also be playing their home games here at the West Concord ballfield. They play the first game on June 6th and play each Wednesday alternating home and away games every week through out the season. The coach is Ron Wilks and two Triton junior high girls are co-coaching as their Triton Senior Project. For more information you can check out their Facebook page at Triton Youth Fast Pitch Softball Association.

Friday Night Under the Lights starts on May 31st at 5pm and hosts a three team round robin tournament every Friday through the 2nd week of July. The West Concord ball field is in great shape and the community has supported the work to make it an attractive venue for teams. The addition of lights a few years ago allows tournaments to be played well after dark.
