FHS softball team competitive at Eden Prairie scrimmages


Paul Harrington got his first chance to see the majority of his new team in action Saturday afternoon and, for the most part, the veteran head coach liked what he saw.

No scores were kept, but Harrington said the Farmington softball team played Burnsville and Hermantown "even up" and "had the advantage" against De La Salle in three 70-minute scrimmages at the Eden Prairie Dome.
