Starting District 10-5A play on Tuesday, the softball team dropped it’s opening game 4-2 to Emerson. Next up for the team, the Big Cat Tournament in Commerce.

The Redhawks softball team took a 4-2 loss Tuesday night against the Emerson Mavericks in the opening game of District 10-5A play.

“Our game was pretty good, for our first district game. It was definitely a competitive game,” head coach Baylea Higgs said. “We kept it tied 2-2 for a while, but in the end they just slightly outscored us.”

The Redhawks may have lost, but they lit up the field last night defensively, according to Higgs.

“Defense was a big strength last night, we didn’t have any errors, which is awesome,” Higgs said. “We had some offensive moments as well, we just weren’t able to string our hits together.”

Sophomore Sam Byrnes agrees, and notes the improvement in energy on the field Tuesday night.

“One of the things we kind of struggled with this game was keeping up bats and stringing our hits together,” she said. “We had good energy in the dugout and the field, I think we need to just work a little more on situational hitting.”

Next up for the team is the Big Cat Tournament in Commerce, with Higgs planning to fix some mental errors for the tournament.

”We should work on our situational hitting, our approach at the plate, fixing our mindset before the game, and being ready to play confident going into the tournament,” Higgs said.
