CHICKASHA – The game may be the same. The colors may be the same. The players may even be the same. But the USAO softball team will be different this season.

“I think we’ll see a different kind of Drover softball team,” Head Coach Jennifer White said. “These girls are going to be more aggressive. They know how to play the game. I think we’re going to be more competitive.”
