The fall Hastings High softball team got off to good start to the 2013 season Thursday.
Pitcher Abby Loetterle hurled a shutout, the defense played well behind her and the offense put up 10 runs in a 10-0 victory against Minden Thursday at the Smith Softball Complex.
"I was really happy with how the girls played. In the first inning, we had a sweet double play, and then in the second, we really put the pressure on," said Hastings High head coach Pete Theoharis. "We ran the bases aggressively and girls just put the ball in play and made things happen throughout the night."
