This Friday before midnight football, head coach Keith Louder and the Mexico varsity softball team are going to try something they've never tried before and have a scrimmage this Friday night at home featuring Palmyra and Marceline. In preparation for that the team hit the field on Aug. 6 and even documented that effort on Twitter with a the above picture and a caption that said, "Mexico Girls Softball 2018 @ Gallop Field. Shout out to Coach Meier in Romania. #bulldogsoftball".

As she has in offseasons past, assistant coach Kayla Meier went to Romania this summer to do missionary work that includes teaching english. The big difference this time around is that now she will stay at least a year and perhaps longer as opposed to the several months she stayed in trips past.
