Maya Holser increases her home-run streak to four games in a loss to Lowell

After going one-and-one against the Red Arrows of Lowell on Monday, the varsity softball team looked to continue the progression of hitting throughout the season. In its last game, the team’s hitting display was on point as the team scored eight runs. Wednesday’s game; however, would be a different story.

The varsity team entered the game as confident as ever after beating Lowell a few days ago. Specifically, the team was prepared to have a big day at the plate.

“I’m starting to see great progress in our hitting compared to the start of the year,” head coach Tracy Jenkins said. “Many batters are getting more confident at the plate and that leads to wins as a team.”

This game would be completely different than the previous matchups the two teams had. Forest Hills Central found that out the hard way, as it trailed the Red Arrows early. 

FHC’s all-conference stud in Maya Holser continued her home-run streak to four games after hitting a three-run shot. She continues to lead and deliver for the Rangers. The fielding was also a bright spot, as Alyssa Wierenga and Maya Holser made a few plays throwing opposing players out. Although there were a few spurts of promise shown by the team, the Rangers were defeated by Lowell 14-6. 

After the loss, the varsity softball team sits at a 2-9 record with a 1-4 conference record. The girls’ next opponent will be West Ottawa when they take on the Panthers on Friday, April 29, at 4:15 PM.
