The HERricanes, a 14 and under all star softball team that contains members from the North Harrison, Salem, Silver Creek, Corydon Central, and South Central high school districts, is headed to the July 26-August 2 USSSA World Series in Orlando, Florida.

Despite the impending trip south, head coach Troy Sanders is calmly watching the team practice with assistant coaches Tony Shutters, Travis McAfee, and Steve Wooldridge.

As Sanders described the assistant coaches, “They’re a huge help to me. They run practice, and allow me to coach.”
Sanders said he likes to sometimes just sit and observe his hard working girls in action during practices, in order to better size up the team’s strengths and weaknesses.
