Frink-Chambers softball starts strong

McALESTER — The Frink-Chambers Lady Falcons look to continue the tradition of competitive fast-pitch softball this season, according to team booster Robert Vaughan and Frink coach Kris Mitchell.

Its last season ended after a deep run into the state tournament.

The expectations and goals for this season are to compete at every level, improve with every outing and return to the state tournament with a shot at the Organization of Rural Elementary Schools state championship. 

There are four returning starters from last year's team: 

• Taryn Howard, first base

• Erin Kelley, second base

• Carlee Eaton, pitcher

• Carly Cox, shortstop. 

Surrounding the returning starters are a group of players that bring both speed and power to the lineup.

Sydney Shelton plays third base; outfielders include Maya Vaughan, Lynnsey Davis and Laurynn Chavarria; Emily Smith plays catcher; and Katelyn Faber plays in the outfield and at first base and also pitches. 

The Lady Falcons started their season 5-1-1 as of Wednesday. They next play Thursday at Hartshorne, then return home Friday to play Haileyville.

Home games are played at the Frink-Chambers campus.
