Girls varsity softball shows true potential


The girls’ luck is finally turning around. On Thursday, April 13 the varsity softball team faced off in a doubleheader against Comstock Park. The final score of the games yesterday were 11-1 in the first game and 25-9 for the second. Not only did the girls do well during the game, but one of the girls, captain Maya Holser, but also reached her 100th career hit during the first game of the doubleheader. Throughout the games on Thursday, Maya accumulated an impressive 7 hits, 6 RBIs, one triple, one home run, and one walk throughout one day.

The whole team is proud of its accomplishments after the games, including sophomore Avery Koehler, who was excited to see the turnaround that the girls had.

“We had a rough start to the season, we needed to change up how we were playing along with how we executed everything. The game against Comstock Park was great for us, our energy, everything. The whole team is proud of Maya, she is going to go far this season along with the rest of her softball career,” Avery said.

Friday, April 14, the team faced off against another challenging team: West Ottawa. A tough first game led the girls to fall behind 15-9 but quickly redeemed themselves in the second game 20-2. The girls record this season stands at 3-6.

On Wednesday, the girls travel to Saugatuck to play their game at 4:30 P.M. in a doubleheader.
