First year of co-op starting on positive notes for Ramettes

JOHNSONBURG – The first year of a cooperative sports agreement between Johnsonburg and Ridgway for softball has thus far proven fruitful with a handful of wins to start the season.“If we can eliminate outside distractions and keep this team focused on softball, we’re going to have a very successful year, and we’re looking for big things,” said Johnsonburg softball coach Kevin Carter. “The co-op has its ups and downs, and you’re going to have that. It’s tough to pinpoint where problems will be before you even co-op, but you weather the storm and look at the positives. The idea of the co-op is to put a competitive team out on the field.”
