BRATTLEBORO -- The Bellows Falls baseball and softball teams will open up on the road this season, with Bob Lockerby’s lads debuting at Leland & Gray on April 8 and Pete Fry’s girls starting off at Woodstock on April 11. Both of those contests will begin at 4:30 p.m.

The Terrier baseball team earned the top seed in Division 2 in 2012, went 1-1 in the playoffs and finished with a 13-4 mark. Mike LaBeau, who pitched brilliantly in relief during the team’s playdown win over U-32 and then delivered a two-run single in the quarterfinal loss, is one of four seniors on the BF squad.

Lockerby’s lads will play their first home game on April 18 versus Windsor, will host Brattleboro on May 24 and welcome Leland & Gray on May 28.

The Bellows Falls softball team will also face Windsor in their home opener on April 18. And Fry’s squad will host Leland & Gray on May 28.

The Terriers went 1-15 a year ago and lost starting pitcher Emma Shaw to graduation. But Chelsea Wilder and Stephanie Green -- both players had three hits late last season versus Green Mountain -- have returned.
