EVART — Evart’s Livia Hopkins is a three-sport athlete but she’s especially looking forward to another strong softball season as a Wildcat junior.

Hopkins said she’s been playing travel softball to get ready for the high school season. As a catcher “my accuracy and throw downs” have been strengths, Hopkins said. She’s hoping to improve on her blocking.

The Wildcats are scheduled to play Roscommon at home on Tuesday to open the season and will be at Vestaburg on Thursday and home against Coleman on Saturday.
