Opening the second round of District 10-5A with a win, the Redhawks softball team now moves to take on Memorial Tuesday. “We’re gonna stay locked in, we’re gonna stay with that mindset that we had last game,” sophomore Sam Byrnes said.

Reigning over the Heritage Coyotes Thursday night, the softball team scored a 13-10 m victory to start round two of District 10-5A play. 

“It was pretty amazing. We were down by a lot but then we really came together as a team and really just got together and then we won the game,” sophomore Sam Byrnes said. “I think it was a great game that reflects on what Liberty softball really is.”

Falling behind by nearly double digits, head coach Baylea Higgs hopes to take the momentum from this game into the rest of round two. 

“The game on Thursday was overall good, we got down pretty early in that game by nine runs to be exact. Then we came back that next half inning and scored 10,” Higgs said. “We ended up winning 13 to 10. So it was a good come from behind victory. And we finally got the timely hitting that I’ve been wanting for the team this whole season.”

Before Thursday’s game, Higgs gave the team a big talk about fixing mentality for the game, which according to Byrnes, was a big impact in the teams success.

“It helps us reflect on our mindsets and we get locked in for the game,” Byrnes said.

Higgs agrees that the shift in mentality positively affected their game.

“I think [discussing our mentality] played a big role in the game,” she said. “The girls definitely responded and they seemed to take what we said and use it constructively instead of taking it personally.”

Going into the game Tuesday against Memorial, Byrnes hopes to carry the success from this game into the next.

“We’re gonna stay locked in, we’re gonna stay with that mindset that we had last game, we’re gonna stay with the same energy and we’re gonna show Memorial who’s boss,” she said.
