LEROY\u00a0\u2014 It was an enjoyable summer of softball that Taylor Warner hopes will mean a fun spring in 2015. Warner will be a junior who saw a half-season of action on the Pine River softball team last spring. \u201cIt was fun,\u201d she said, adding that she played \u201csometimes short when Jenna (Johnson) couldn\u2019t. Or I was second base or I just hit.\u201d Warner was satisfied with her spring performance, but has finished a busy schedule with the Pine River team in the Local Area Teams (LAT) League. During the summer, Warner especially focused on shortstop and her fielding. The Bucks finished the summer schedule recently. \u201cI think we were really good as a team,\u201d Warner said. \u201cWe all got along.\u201d Warner said she actually hit the ball better for the varsity during the spring compared to the summer. Timing is the key to having success at the high school level for softball, Warner noted. But there\u2019s still plenty she wants to work on to get ready for next spring. \u201cIt will be hitting and throwing,\u201d she said. \u201cI think we\u2019re going to do really good next year. We\u2019re closer (as a team).\u201d The Bucks were 2-2 against Reed City during the summer. They defeated the Coyotes to close out the 2014 spring season with a victory in the district semifinals.
