Chimacum cancels softball season
Chimacum will not have a softball team this year due to a lack of participation, coach Lauralee Kiesel informed the Peninsula Daily News on Wednesday morning.
Chimacum athletic director Gary Coyan said the Cowboys had low numbers to begin with and then lost additional players.
“We did everything we could to salvage our season,” Coyan said in an email to media.
“We petitioned WIAA to bring up eighth-graders, but with only two skilled enough to play it just wasn't enough to help us.
“Softball numbers are down across the state. Others schools in the [Nisqually] League are using eighth-graders to salvage their seasons.
“We are going to work hard to have a softball team in the future.”
