Softball swings into district play

Softball opens up district play against the Mavericks on Tuesday. ”Winning is a lot more important in district games,” junior Madison Terry said.

Hoping for a win in their first district game, the Redhawks softball team travels to Emerson on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. to face off against the Mavericks.

”We haven’t seen much of Emerson since last year, and according to statistics we played well against them,” assistant coach Tiffany Thayer said. “If we’re able to keep a strong defense, I believe we could pull a win on Tuesday.”

Going 2-3-1 in the Denton Ryan Tournament that wrapped up on Saturday, Thayer hopes the team can let go of what happened at the tournament and play stronger defensively.

”We’ve been working a lot on bunt coverages, base running, and being aware and in the right spot,” she said. “We struggled with all of those during the tournament but I think we’ll be able to eliminate our errors for the game.”

The team also strives to have better energy and support each other more, according to junior Madison Terry.

“Whenever we aren’t performing as well as we’d want to, we kind of dip in energy, which can cause us to lose confidence and not come back,” Terry said. “I think that when we support each other and cheer loud we do a lot better offensively.”

Terry also acknowledges the importance of playing well in District 10-5A.

”Winning is a lot more important in district games because doing better means going further in playoffs, a huge goal for us this season,” she said.
