Varsity softball falls to the Fighting Scots


A tough loss occurring on Monday, March 28, against Calvin Christian did not keep the girls down. The second and third game of the season against Caledonia was a tough battle, but the Rangers fell short in the first game 10-2 and were unfortunately mercied during the second game. 

Coach Tracy Jenkins is excited to see where the team will go along with how they are going to push through the losses.  The whole team has high hopes for a very successful season. 

“Due to the numbers and makeup of our team, some players are asked to play positions that they do not play in travel ball or they have not played there in the past. We will continue to get them reps in those new positions so they grow more accustomed to it. That means lots of fielding practice,” coach Jenkins said. 

During the first game of the night, junior Eliana Amenta had a great hit which brought her to first base, then sophomore Avery Koehler had a great hit to center field bringing her to second and advancing Eliana to third. In the field, the girls did well with plays by senior Elizabeth Ptak at first and great catches at shortstop by senior Maya Holser. 

Now, there is a long break until the girls next game, April 11, against a tough team: The Byron Center’s Bulldogs. Make sure to make it out at 4:15 P.M. at Byron Center’s fields.
