The Bears have been busy in the past week here at the Boone campus. Fall softball and baseball have started up with both teams competing. Bears’ softball competed with Marshalltown CC on Monday in their first contest of the fall season. The baseball team has competed in three games this season, with two of them being in Indiana and one at home. Fall season stats and records are not kept, the competitions are strictly scrimmages and are not recorded by teams or the state. The fall schedule for both programs can be found on the Bears’ website, dmaccbears.com.
