The seven year drought has passed. The softball team ended their season with a 6-6 district record claiming the third position in playoffs.
“I’m really proud of the girls,” coach Laurie Friesenhahn said. “It was tough; we have a very competitive district.”
The girls ended their season after coming out victorious against MacArthur this past Tuesday. After realizing they clinched the third spot, they were ecstatic.
“This is my last year playing and its good to end it on a good note,” senior Elizabeth Rosas said. “It’s just great to be a part of history.”
Coach Friesenhahn has been the head softball coach for 6 years and her team is very honored to have her be the coach that overcomes the playoff deficit.
“[Coach Friesenhahn] does whatever she can do to help us,” Rosas said. “She backs us up 100 percent and never lets us down.”
The girls have a tough road ahead of them; lacking playoff experience, they have no knowledge of what to expect.
“It’s tougher or as tough as districts,” said Friesenhahn. “As long as we take care of our business on our side we should do good.”
The Softball girls try to make their first playoff run against Judson on Friday night at 8 p.m. at Steele High School.
