Stretching before a game, the Redhawks softball has started off slow with the team looking for its first win Friday at Lone Star.

Softball swings into action Friday in a District 9-5A game against the Lone Star Rangers taking place at 7:15 p.m. at Lone Star High School.

In the Redhawks previous game against the Reedy Lions, the team lost (16-1), however they plan to continue improving and working harder each day.

“We went in wanting to work on the little things we have been implementing,” head coach Jill Bradshaw said. “We accomplished it pretty well but we plan to keep improving in practice.”

While the team feels they not only need to stay physically strong, senior Karina Otrhalek believes it is just as much a mental sport as it is physical.

“I’m hoping the team just continues to stay mentally strong and just keep improving on the things that we need to work to stay focused throughout the whole game,” Otrhalek said via text.
