Softball JV Red had a big rally Monday night to capture the win from Walled Lake Central 9 to 5. Working hard at the mound was both Keely Carlson (pitched 5 innings) and Abby Whitt coming to the mound for the last two innings. Megan Swagert was strong behind the plate. Emily Taylor, Savannah Everett, Presley Huelskamp, and Ryanne Kilgore showed an impressive defense. Savannah and Ryanne had our doubles for the night while Presley turned her double into a triple with smart base running. We are 9 and 4. Looking to bring the heat to Hartland Wednesday.
JV Red started last Wednesday night slow with a loss in the first game to Howell. Presley Huelskamp double just couldn’t jump start the girls effort even with Megan Swagert staying strong behind the plate. However, the girls rallied and brought their full effort the second game winning 11-10. Emily Taylor hit one out of the park center field to rally our offense. Keely Carlson was a beast in center field making several catches and then covering second base for a huge game changing out in the last inning. Abby Whitt was solid at the mound to earn the win. Entering the last inning we were down 6 to 10. Presley, Emily, Keely, Makinna Hicks, and Savannah Everett all scored with Megan Swagert hitting the winning RBI.
