On Tuesday, April 26, the varsity girls softball faced the Chesterton Trojans. The Lady Indians were defeated with a final score of 5-3.
“We had a rough outing at the plate and a couple errors in the field today, but we tried our hardest to fight till the end. A couple of our girls had some big hits and plays as well,” Crystal Guzman (11) said.
The Trojans put two points on the top of the first inning, and the Indians tied the score up with Gabriella Carra (9) hitting a double in the third inning.
“I was glad I was able to stop the pitchers no-hitter and that I was able to get something going for my team,” Carra said.
Even though the girls lost, they still stayed positive and found ways to improve their plays.
“I think we can improve on finding a way to shorten up and put the ball in play when runners are in scoring position. Personally, I need to work on staying ahead of hitters later in the game,” Madisen Tucker (10) said.
The next home game is against Bishop Noll on Friday, April 29 at 4:30 p.m.
