In any season opener, it’s no shock to see a player or two make their long-awaited varsity debut. But rarely is that the case for an entire roster.
That was reality for the Bemidji High School softball team at the BHS softball field on Friday, though. The Lumberjacks were victims of a 6-4 loss to Brainerd with a roster consisting exclusively of newcomers to the varsity program.
Bemidji will next trek to St. Cloud Apollo for a road doubleheader starting at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20.
