Patriots drop opener to North Platte

Adams Central's Shelby Gerloff bats against North Platte Thursday
night at Smith Softball Complex in Hastings.

Adams Central softball coach Chelsey Jacobitz said the Patriots did not get off to the start they expected in Thursday’s season opener against a tough Class A opponent, but she’s not one to make excuses, either.

“We just talked about coming into the game a little more authority,” Jacobitz said. “North Platte came in here right away, scored and set the tone and made us get a little nervous and off our game plan. It’s just tough to start like that.”

North Platte jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning en route to a 10-0 victory over the Patriots Thursday at the Smith Softball Complex.
