Young Dadeville Softball Team Ready For 2020

by Bob Jackson

The Dadeville Bearcats did not field a team in 2019 due to lack of players but the 2020 season has 10 girls out for the team. Dadeville will be playing on a revamped field. Veteran Coach Brent Rountree begins his 12th season as Bearcat coach and also serves as Dadeville High School Athletic Director. His assistant coach is Ben Dobbins.

Only one senior on the squad with the other nine being under classmen players. Rountree likes the hustle and hard work put in by the girls in early practices. Most players also compete in basketball.

Dadeville will again be in the Polk County League and play in two tournaments, one at Humansville and one at Hermitage. First season contest is at the Humansville Tournament August 28 and 29.

The top teams in the Polk County League in 2020 will be Walnut Grove, Halfway and Weaubleau. Dadeville will compete in the Class 1 District tournament in October.
