Blooming Prairie coach Ali Mach spent some time recently with the KRFO coaches show for an outlook on the season for BP softball.

The Awesome Blossoms graduated only a couple of players from last season, Madison Worke and Tessa Ivers, but both were longtime contributors. Mach has a veteran squad back, including pitcher Elly Strunk, who will be a third-year starter.
