Softball sits on a two game win streak after defeating Braswell Tuesday. Although challenges in the first inning, the girls were able to turn it around.

The Redhawks were able to take another win home this season, going into the den of the Braswell Bengals and walking away with a 6-3 victory.

“We could’ve started off a lot stronger by being awake and starting from the first pitch, rather than slowly gaining our strength and confidence,” junior Madison Terry said. “I feel like there could’ve been improvements, but we brought it back together in the end.”

The Redhawks had a rough start, according to assistant coach Tiffany Thayer, with some mental blocks and over-confidence.

“We could do a lot better locking in mentally before a game,” Thayer said. “We got a little egotistical coming into the game because we had beaten them in fall ball, which made us play too relaxed for our first inning, and it showed.”

The team was able to play better despite the challenges of the first inning, especially with pitching.

“The first inning was a struggle, but overall we did get better each inning, our pitcher got better each inning, and everything was just improving,” Thayer said. “Our pitcher, Addison Hanson, had 16 strikeouts, so that’s five and a half innings retired just on our pitching alone, which is phenomenal.”

Thayer hopes that after this game, the team will be better at focusing on the mentality of the game, and aims to push forward past the mistakes.

“There are going to be times where we can’t recover from a bad first inning if we aren’t able to stay mentally strong, luckily this game we did,” Thayer said. “We had mistakes in other games and after talking over them we were able to eliminate them, so hopefully we can do the same with our few mistakes from this game.”
