Softball Swings Into Playoffs

The Varsity Softball Team competed against Northwest at Eaton High School on April 28-30. The Playoff game consists of 3 games and it was best out of 3. Although the circumstances that the Varsity Softball team faced this year they kept pushing through and had a great season.

“I feel like the varsity had a pretty good season,” softball coach Bradley Overton said. “There were so many road blocks with COVID-19 over the past year we were just happy to get on the field and play.”

The team started their season off around January and has made some huge accomplishments along the way.

“We started off the season fairly young and have gained experience throughout the season learning from mistakes and making adjustments,” Overton said. “The team has matured more and more each week into a team that has the depth to be versatile.”

Not only is getting along on the team important but so are the bonds that are created within.

“Over the past few months we grew extremely close as a team and were able to overcome any obstacles along the way,” senior Rachel Baumann said.

The team played many games throughout the season and finished with a great record.

“We played 32 games this season,” Baumann said. “Our record was 20-12 with 20 wins and 12 loses.”

This isn’t the first time that the team makes it to playoffs.

“This program is a mainstay in the playoffs year in and year out you can expect the Hornets to be in the mix for a playoff spot,” Overton said. “As a program, we have been to the state tournament twice and to the final 8 four times.”

Although the team’s season is over they can always look back on the memories that they made this season.

“Through this season I was excited about getting to work with an amazing team and being able to have great experiences in high school,” senior Madelynn Enrriques said.
