Winding up for a win, Redhawk softball saw improvement against Wakeland High School in their game Tuesday. While the team did not meet their expectations, they still feel they grew as a whole.

Taking on the Wakeland Wolverines, the second place softball team in District 9-5A on Tuesday, the Redhawks were run-ruled, losing 18-0. 

“We just made some good defensive plays that you know we have struggled with before that we wouldn’t usually make,” head coach Jill Bradshaw said. “They just had a lot of base hits off of us and we just had a few errors here and there.”

Usually playing shortstop, freshman Delila Bond was put to the test not only playing a new position, but taking on a top district team. 

“I feel like it was a new experience for me, because I started at a new position,” she said. “But overall I think I did pretty good. I kinda got over my fear of starting pitching and I think that it’s gonna really help me improve and really become a fearless pitcher.”
