Hoping to get their first win of the season the Redhawk softball team hosts District 9-5A rival  Lebanon Trail Tuesday with first pitch at 7:15 p.m.

“Our goals are to come out and compete again,” head softball coach Jill Bradshaw said. “This should be a good competition game for us going in. Our biggest challenge is probably going to be hitting off the left handed pitcher, but I think that we will still find success with it.”

With approximately 85-90% of pitches right handed, the Redhawk softball team will be put to the test as this is not what they’re used to seeing on the mound.

However, senior Jillian Bowles believes this difference will be an advantage.

“I’m hoping that we win this game,” she said. “We honestly have a really good chance of beating Lebanon Trail this year. We have a good chance because we all know their pitcher is left-handed and she’s slow. Our defense has really improved this year so we have a really good chance to beat them.”
