The Ashland Oredockers softball team has battled its way into the No. 5 spot in the Heart O’ North Conference standings as of May 11. The ‘Dockers, 4-6 in the HON going into Thursday night’s doubleheader against a beatable Cumberland club (3-6 in the HON as of May 11), feature a young team with just two seniors.
AHS finishes its season on a four-game homestand playing a Saturday, May 14 doubleheader against No. 2 Hayward (11-2), followed by conference-leading Northwestern (13-1) on Monday, May 16, and bottom-dwelling Ladysmith (2-10) on Tuesday May 17. Should AHS take down the teams below them in the standings and sneak a win against Hayward or Northwestern, the young Oredockers can finish with a solid .500 record in the HON for 2022.
