CHURUBUSCO â Churubusco softball head coach Wayne Gibson didnât have any seniors on his team last year.
The 2012 âBusco team still managed to compile a 11-16 record, while finishing 4-6 in the Northeast Corner Conference.
Last yearâs Lady Eaglesâ season ended in a close 2-1 loss in the first round of sectionals. The opponent that fell them: eventual 2012 2A state runner-up Adams Central.
âWe felt we competed last year, and we feel we can compete in the conference and our sectional this year,â said the âBusco coach.

Leading the way for the Lady Eagles this year will be five seniors, each having started for at least two seasons already for âBusco.
