Swinging through the weekend, the Redhawks softball team competed in the Denton Ryan Tournament. “We got a lot of learning experience from this weekend,” assistant coach Tiffany Thayer said.

It was a busy weekend for the Redhawks softball team as they went 2-3-1 in the Denton Ryan Tournament.

“We got a lot of learning experience from this weekend,” assistant coach Tiffany Thayer said.

“Results were not what we wanted but we’re going to work to improve before our next tournament later this week.”

The team needs to work on their defensive skill set according to Thayer, especially adjusting to alternate pitchers and playing different positions.

”We need to better back our defense for all of our pitchers,” she said. “We tend to play timid when our main pitcher isn’t pitching and we’re prone to making more mistakes, but we can’t have our main pitcher pitch all the time so that’s something we need to work on.”

Thayer also believes that the girls are more focused on what’s ahead of them, rather than the current situation.

”The conversation at the end of the tournament was that we need to focus on how we’re playing right now,” Thayer said. “We have end goals for the season of where we want to be in the playoffs but sometimes those goals take away from how we play in the games right now.” 

Junior Adeline Glatch agrees, and points out that the team was not all bad this weekend.

”I feel like we did alright. We played strong just not consistently, so there’s definitely a lot to take away from it,” she said. “Specifically, we need to work on knowing our plays consistently and knowing where we should be on the field and executing that.”
