With a pre-district record of 13-6 the softball team is going into their first district games.
“We should be pretty competitive [in district],” coach Laurie Friesenhahn said, “and we are projecting ourselves to be in the playoffs.”
The team’s start to their district schedule hasn’t been what they had hoped for, with a 14-3 loss against Johnson, a 1-4 lost against Roosevelt, and a close loss against Churchill 5-6 . But like any other team their goal is to make it to playoffs, and the team believes that keeping your head high after a loss brings the right mentality.
“My hopes, as a senior, is to make playoffs for the first time. By basically just playing as a team, hit really good, and to stay positive,” senior Stefanie Fuentes said.
With the team lacking the playoff experience, the returning varsity players are making the best of their chances at playoffs.
“I feel that our team is better and stronger this year. So we can make playoffs by just playing hard like we have been,” Fuentes added.
Softball’s next game is tuesday Mar.22 against Roosevelt, and the team is planning for a better outcome to that game.
“We’re a very competitive team and the girls are very fun to watch play, but we are hard on ourselves when we make a mistake we take it pretty hard,” Coach Friesenhahn said.” We are Perfectionist.”
