National High School Federation posts changes to softball rules

The National Federation of State High School Associations approved four rules changes from the softball committee at its June meeting in Indianapolis.

Rule 3-2-15 states that all equipment must be inspected by the umpire and is to be put outside the dugout/bench prior to the start of games. The committee agreed that placing all equipment in one location at one time is a more efficient method for inspections.

In Rule 3-2-1, the committee added inclement weather as an exception to the uniform rule for state associations.

The committee also approved new language to Rule 3-2-7 to reinforce the solid color undergarments requirements.

“We felt if was important to standardize the colors of the undergarments not only to reinforce the solid color requirements similar to other NFHS sport rules, but also because it can be a distraction and create a possible safety concern,” said Sandy Search, NFHS director of sports and staff liaison for softball.

In Rule 3-6-7, which states players and substitutes cannot enter the game unreported. The penalty was revised to state the head coach is restricted to the dugout/bench for the remainder of the game only for a second violation.

The committee also revised Rule 1-5-2c by eliminating the description of the taper’s surface. The change brings the federation in line with other rules codes concerning the same issue.

Big rally puts Bainbridge softball back into state

The Bainbridge softball team qualified for state for the 10th straight year, beating Ballard 4-3 in nine innings Friday in the Class 3A SeaKing District tournament at the Southwest Athletic Complex in Seattle.

It took a big rally to make it. Bainbridge was down 3-0 heading into the bottom of the seventh. Maddie Loverich’s two-out, two-run triple tied the game.

Kari Perry’s two-out single scored the winning run in the ninth. Sara Colley went the distance, giving up just six hits.

Kingston names Grimm as new football coach

Kingston athletic director Jared Terrible said Thursday that the school has named Alec Grimm as the new football coach.

Grimm accepted the school’s offer to coach the Buccaneers on Wednesday, Terrible said. He’ll replace former coach W. Todd Harder, who resigned after four seasons.

Alec Grimm, a 2011 Bainbridge High graduate, is the son of former Bainbridge football coach Andy Grimm, who coached the Spartans for 18 seasons before leaving his post last fall.

It’s an interesting hire considering former Kingston assistant coach Jeff Rouser is replacing Andy Grimm at Bainbridge.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see Harder join Rouser’s staff at Bainbridge or see Andy Grimm join his son’s staff at Kingston.
