Breaking News / Updates

Captains for 2021 Season:
Coaches announced captains for next season via a Zoom yesterday. Congrats to the following 2021 Captains and we look forward to their leadership during the next year. They are a great resource for information to all players at all levels:
- Mikayla Gee
- Megan Ihrke
- Abby Miles

Spring Sports Season Cancellation:
On Thursday April 23rd, the decision was made by the Governor to close Minnesota schools for the remainder of the academic year. Which means all Spring activities are also cancelled. This is incredibly disappointing for all of our players, coaches and our entire JM Fastpitch family. This is especially true for our four Senior captains: Ashley, Gabby, Megan and Olivia.

We will be contacting everyone over the next few weeks to wrap up the season. Although it is heart breaking to all of us not to be together, practicing, and competing as a team/family -- the health and safety of our families, healthcare workers, and community must be the priority. We love you all!

Varsity Game Scorecasts

Use the link below to see the iScore game information, replay, etc from all JM Softball varsity contests.  Generally the scorecast will only be available after the game has completed versus live scoring due to lack of internet connection from the venues.  But if we have a live connection you will be able to see live game scoring.

Fundraising Closure: Thanks for turning in all the fundraising cards and funds. As a program we sold 400 cards in our COVID shortened fundraiser, so thank you to all for the support. Elli Biermeier was our top seller and she led Team Adams as the winning team. Thanks Again!!

Equipment & Uniform Turn In: If you have any team equipment, including uniforms, catcher's gear, bags, etc -- please turn that back in by contacting Coach Breitbach (507-358-7115) or dropping off at his house (4406 Stratford Lane NW).
