Coach Bill Rosner said his Clayton team pitched well, caught well and played good defense.
Bill Rosner and the Fontbonne University women's softball team have a mantra: It's not if, it's win, and that when is now. The Griffins followed that mindset in the season that recently ended, finishing with a 29-10 record and becoming one of 60 teams out of 404 to qualify for the first round of the NCAA tournament for Division 3. They fell out of the tournament after losing two straight games, to Washington University and Anderson (IN) University. The team has come a long way since Rosner, a Bridgeton resident, became head coach. In the season before his arrival, the Griffins won just eight games. In his first year, they won 21 games. In his second year, they won 24. "The future is good," Rosner said Tuesday, reflecting on the end of his …
