LEROY\u00a0\u2014 Plenty will be expected of Pine River senior Jenna Johnson this season and the Bucks\u2019 catcher is hoping to deliver. She\u2019s entering her third year and will be a catcher. As a sophomore, she played shortstop. But going to catcher on the varsity \u201cwas a big transition,\u201d she said. \u201cSome of the skills I had as a shortstop (transitioned) into catcher like picking up the ball, things like that.\u201d Johnson was happy with a .400 batting average. \u201cI feel like the end of the year against conference pitchers, slower pitchers, I couldn\u2019t adjust well to the ball,\u201d she said. \u201cI hope to challenge myself and adjust to the speed as we get challenged by different teams.\u201d As a catcher, Johnson has a strong arm. \u201cOur pitchers will be faster this year,\u201d Johnson said. \u201cWe have a variety of pitchers.\u201d The Bucks have had some games already, but still need some work, Johnson indicated. \u201cWe\u2019re looking good,\u201d she said. \u201cWe cooperate with each other and communicate well. We\u2019re all friends. We\u2019re here to help each other. I think we can get conference, I don\u2019t know who\u2019s all in our district. At the rate we\u2019re going, I think we would possibly take district.\u201d The Bucks were scheduled to play Lake City at home on Tuesday. They\u2019re also scheduled to play at Orchard View on Friday and at Big Rapids on April 20.
