Head Of IGHSAU Says Softball Season Has Exceeded Expectations

Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union Executive Director Jean Berger says the softball season has exceeded her expectations.

The Union decided in May to offer an abbreviated season in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the state softball tournament begins Monday in Fort Dodge.

Berger says around a dozen teams had their seasons cut short due to a positive test.

Berger says fans at the state tournament will experience many of the same protocols as the regular season.

Face coverings are encouraged but not mandatory.

Berger says fans and players have done a good job of handling the changes this season.
