Taking on Memorial Tuesday, the Redhawks softball team fell short losing 5-4 to the Warriors. “We put ourselves in position to win the game multiple times and we just couldn’t get it done,” head coach Baylea Higgs said.

Losing 5-4 to the Memorial Warriors on Tuesday, the Redhawks softball team dropped further behind in the District 10-5A playoff chase as the Redhawks (3-7) are now three games behind Emerson for the final postseason spot. 

“We put ourselves in position to win the game multiple times and we just couldn’t get it done,” head coach Baylea Higgs said. “But they played pretty good. Just had some opportunities that we didn’t capitalize on.”

Despite the loss, Higgs believes the team has improved from the last time they faced the Warriors, as well as from the rest of the season.

“I think we definitely had a better approach at the plate,” she said. “We were more confident and ready to hit the pitch she was throwing. We hit the ball a lot better this time. I’m glad that they were able to make that adjustment versus last time [we played them].”

A goal for the team is to play consistently confident as well as swinging at good pitches, according to Higgs.

“We had a couple of times where we had runners in scoring position and we just got too anxious and we swung at pitches that weren’t necessarily good to hit,” Higgs said.
