Childhood friends share love of sport at Ferris

by Published: Apr 24, 2013

Seniors Morgan Kramerich and Dana Bowler have grown up together and are now shar­ing the spot­light for a suc­cess­ful Ferris soft­ball team.

Ferris hosted its only home event of the sea­son at Top Taggart Field as the Bulldog Open kicked off in full force.

The event hosted some local com­pe­ti­tion in Lake Superior State and Grand Valley State along with some indi­vid­ual ath­letes from a vari­ety of places on April 6.

Junior David Silversmith said, “Many of us didn’t have the com­pe­ti­tion we nor­mally have, so it was cool for many of the younger play­ers and peo­ple that don’t get to travel a lot to per­form in front of their friends and fam­ily.” (more…)
