MICHAEL STEINHOFER
After a disappointing end to last year, the Manchester College softball team has undergone several changes and is reloading for what hopes to be a promising season. Athletic director Rick Espeset hired Tracey Cromer, who had a 107-97-2 record in her five-year tenure with North Western College in St. Paul, MN, to restore a bit of fire to the Manchester program that was 5-11 in the H.C.A.C.

The first act was “The Boy Who Grew Too Fast” by Gian Carlo Menotti, followed by excerpts from Act Two of “Don Giovanni” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the final act was excerpts from Acts Two and Three of “Die Fledermaus” by Johann Strauss.
