Monessen softball team gets season started on right foot

Written by Nick Tolomeo on .

Last season Monessen won a total of four games. In terms of matching that, the Greyhounds are halfway home this year.

Monessen battled the elements and cold weather to play a pair of non-section games at Shawnee Park against Jeannette and Charleroi last week.

If Monessen has shown anything this season, it is that it can win games and win them close. The Greyhounds edged Jeannette 11-10 on Friday and then edged Charleroi 3-2 on Saturday.

It then had two section games against California and Frazier postponed this week because of weather.

The Greyhounds are scheduled to resume play on Tuesday, April 2 at section rival West Greene.
