After a string of postponed games to unplayable weather conditions, the Kellogg Community College softball team got back to business this week, winning five of their last seven games.
The past week’s play — along with two losses to Muskegon Community College on April 5 and another two to Lake Michigan College on April 16 — bring the Bruins’ conference record to an even 7-14 for the season so far.
Here’s a roundup of stats from recent play.
