It took some doing, but the fi eld was ready to play on last Wednesday evening in Fairfi eld for the Groesbeck- Fairfi eld district softball game. School offi cials literally had to dig a hole in the outfi eld and let the water drain into it, in order to pump the water out up until just a few hours before the start of Wednesday’s game, letting “Mother Nature” do the rest of the drying out process. Shortly after the game began, the Lady Goats quickly jumped to a 1-0 lead after Harlee Bennett drove a pitch over the left centerfi eld wall. Groesbeck added another in the top of the third, when Bennett scored from third on a single to left by Skye Loper.
