Looking for redemption, the Redhawks prepare for their next game against the Emerson Mavericks. Losing earlier in the season to Emerson, the girls are hoping this game has a different outcome.

Swinging into the second half of District 9-5A play, the Redhawks host the Memorial Warriors Friday at 7:15 p.m.

“I think we’re going to play them a lot better in the second round,” assistant coach Kristin Binyon said. “Our bats are really hitting right now, our base running is getting more aggressive, and our gloves are getting stronger.”

Having already played them before, the Redhawks will know how their competition plays heading into the game.

“I feel a little bit more confident in myself after already seeing this team and how this team plays now that we are in round 2 of districts,” freshman Delila Bond said. “I know their pitcher, she is  really strong and throws all different types of pitches. So now I know to look out for that.”
