After 15 years of softball seasons ending with the regular season, the Redhawks softball team makes history with their first appearance in the playoffs in school history. The girls head into a three game series on Thursday, when they hope to continue their memorable year.

In their first game of District 10-5A play, the softball team left The Nest with folded wings on Tuesday night after losing to the Emerson Mavericks 9-8. 

Even though this game didn’t go the way the Redhawks may have wanted it to, sophomore Delila Bond is confident in the team’s chance of success in their tournament that starts on Thursday.

“I did very well offensively hitting,” Bond said. “I feel that this was a good confidence booster for the season and a preview of how far we have come and how much more growth and potential we have.”

For head coach Baylea Higgs, the game is a learning experience.

“We can continue to build the defense and make the routine plays,” Higgs said. “There were a lot of highlights and positives to take away, we just need to keep growing and learning everyday.”
