For most students and staff on campus and across Frisco ISD, the last nine days were spring break–a time for rest and relaxation, free from the stress of projects and homework.

Not for the Redhawks softball team, though.

The players, along with head softball coach Baylea Higgs, had to sacrifice parts of two days to face off against the Centennial Titans and the Independence Knights.

But the sacrifice proved to be worth it, as the Redhawks saw highly positive results, overpowering Centennial 16-1 Monday night before winning against Independence 14-2.

“Overall, we played really well as a whole,” Higgs said. “Our pitching was lights out both games and our defense was amazing behind her. It always makes a pitcher more comfortable when your team is scoring 5 or more runs per inning to get out there and pitch their best. At the plate, we are just seeing the ball really well and executing when we have runners on base. We are doing a great job of getting runners on, getting them in scoring position and driving them in.”

Although she definitely shares the same sentiment, sophomore Francesa Duran is a bit more succinct.

“We’re locked in,” Duran said. “For real.”
