The softball team will be going up against Southlake Carroll on Friday, March 29. Hoping to make it into playoffs for the sixth consecutive year, while the team lost starters with the 2018 class athletes graduating, they have made up for it with their new varsity members, as the underclassmen refuse to give up.
“Our team this year is very young so it took awhile for everybody to get out of their shell,” said varsity player, Rylee Layton. “Having so many new varsity members, it has been a process trying to get but we have come a long way and are ready for the second half of district.”
Taking on their first district win against Fossil Ridge, the team showed up and showed off as their young team took to the field with freshman, Reese Mitchell, taking on her role as starter pitcher, and effectively keeping Fossil Ridge’s batters off balance in order to win.
“[Our game] against Fossil Ridge, was really exciting,” said senior, Natalie Sorenson. “A lot of people doubted us and we proved that we have the fight and drive to come back and beat anyone. We have a lot of young players and half of our team is new…[but]…we have shown that we have what it takes to fight and win.“
