Wednesday night, the junior varsity girls traveled to Onaway to try and take two wins home. The team came up short the first game, but fought back in the second. They gave it all they had, but Onaway had a walk off win. It was devastating, but a good learning experience for the first game of the season.
“We learned that cheering in the second game helped us out a lot more and kept our energy level high,” freshman Savannah Spence said.
Even though they came out with a loss, they earned a lot of good stats. Throughout both games, the team worked well and sacrificed base hits for RBI’s. The girls kept their cool when they lost the first game, and it gave them confidence to come back in the second. Overall the team worked well together to accomplish the goals that are set and to reach the potential coach Brad Hanel expects them to be at.
“I think that Tyra’s mom’s sloppy joe’s were so good, and I think the whole team was just waiting to eat,” freshman Maddi Wolgast said. “I think the food helped us to do better in the second game.”
The team went home satisfied with what they accomplished and are eagerly waiting to critique things next practice. The JV looks forward to the upcoming season and hopes to take more wins away from other teams. They hope to travel far in their journey through softball and learn a lot more along the way.
