Softball sport shorts: Immanuel

(Scrimmages do not count toward win/loss record. Visit the Sports Section for girls’ softball features. For a simple overview of scores and upcoming games, check the Spring sport box scores, 2013 for dates, opponents and times for all Eagle sports).

Be sure to visit the 2012-13 girls’ softball schedule, home page, or check out The Eagles are currently 0-1 overall and 0-0 in the West Sequoia League. The Eagles will next play against Mendota Lady Aztecs, Mar. 1.

Fresno Christian traveled to Reedley to play the Immanuel Eagles in their first non-league game of the 2012-2013 season, Feb. 27, 4 p.m. They started the game slowly as they did not score for the first two innings. Immanuel, however, scored six runs in the second inning and two in the third.

Despite the lead Immanuel held, FC came back in the third inning with six runs and one in the fourth. FC shut out the home team in the bottom of the fourth inning, but the umpire called the game as the sun set. Although FC was on the verge of winning, the team was unable to cinch the victory and was defeated, 8-7.

Head Coach Jeff Regan recognized nervousness in many of the girls from a lack of experience and it being the season’s first game, but he was excited to see the team’s fight and determination in their comeback. He was also glad for the opportunity to observe weak spots and work to improve them now that they have been revealed, and also to take the positives and expand on them.

“Wednesday’s game was a good start, providing the coaches and players the opportunity to see where things stand,” Regan said. “Battling nerves is tough to do in the first game of the season, but the goal is constantly learning and improving. Not giving up and battling back into the game was a positive, and one goal for tomorrow is to build on the positives.”

Returning varsity catcher Ashley Garcia, ’15, was encouraged by the team’s overall performance despite the rough start. However, she knows that in order to gain a victory over the Mendota Aztecs, the Eagles will need to come out strong at the beginning of the game rather than picking up the pace later on.

“Our game was a great reflection of our season,” Garcia said. “We did really well for our first game and I hope we do just as good in our game against Mendota. I think we need to be pumped and ready right out of the gate instead of actually starting to get into it in the fourth inning, but if we just focus and remember to relax and have fun I think we’ll do great.”

FC will play next at home against the Mendota Lady Aztecs at 4 p.m., March 1.
