This past Thursday, the girls varsity softball team had a tough battle against the Cusino Patriots. During the first inning the game was close with no runs on the board, but as the game progressed South started to trail behind. This year the team is young, but full of raw talent.
“We have a really young team. We have five sophomores, four freshmen, one senior and two juniors. So, our confidence level isn’t in the right place. We make some really good plays, so I think we have the potential to be a really good team,” Megan Michaels ‘17 said.
As the season has progressed the team has connected and it is apparent on the field.
“We are learning and getting better everyday, which is most important. I think the girls have bonded really well together and I think as each day goes by they get better,” coach Bill Fleming said.
The team is strongest when it comes to batting however there are still things that they need to work on, just as any team would need to.
“We have some really strong hitters up at the front, defensive wise we have a really strong outfield, some really good strong infielders,” Lauren Sancya ’18 said.
The team automatically goes to districts, but are in hopes of making it further into playoffs this year.
“Everyone makes the districts and our goal is to win districts and move on to regionals and I think if we continue to improve, I think that’s something we can do,” Fleming said.
While the Blue Devils battled through Thursday’s game, the Patriots proved to have a stronger offense. The final score was 10-1.
