Softball tied for WSL lead

The girl’s softball team battled and defeated the Fowler Redcats 11-5 on April 18 to open the second half of the West Sierra League (WSL) season. The Lady Eagles lost to Fowler in the first half of the season but beat them in the Fowler tournament over Easter vacation and have continued their winning ways since.

Coach Robert Foshee has faith in his team to win the W.S.L. and make the playoffs.

“We have put ourselves in a good position to win league,” Foshee said. “We have done really well so far and I think that if we put our minds to it we should win the rest of our games.”

Lately the girls have been practicing sliding by using a Slip ?n Slide. This helps to improve timing and skill.

“Depending on the game situation it is important to have an accurate slide,” Hillary Kell, ?05, the team’s center fielder, said. “The Slip ?n Slide helps us improve and it’s fun too.”

These sliding practices have paid off in their games because sliding made most runs into home plate during their game against Fowler.

“Beating Fowler was one of our most important wins,” Ashley Gable, ’05, the team’s first baseman, said. “If we hadn’t won we wouldn’t have a chance to win league.”

Since the girls beat Fowler, they are tied with Caruthers for first place. If they win the rest of their games, the team will capture the league championship.

“We didn’t play our best ball in the first half,” Shelly Foust, ’02, said, “but we came out strong in the second half with a win.”

The girl’s next home game will be May 2 against the Tranquility Tigers. Softball is now 7-4 in the W.S.L. and 10-13 overall.
