Facing Centennial Friday at The Nest, the softball team looks for a season sweep of the the Titans with the Redhawks winning the first meeting between the two teams 9-1.

Softball hopes to score a win at The Nest on Friday night against Centennial High School at 6:30 p.m. where the Redhawks are hoping for a repeat of their 9-1 win earlier this season. 

“I’m feeling cautiously confident heading into the game,” head coach Baylea Higgs said. “While we did beat the team convincingly before, I know that anything can happen and we won’t underestimate our opponents.”

Higgs strives to use this game as an opportunity for the girls to grow in specific skills they might not be as strong at.

“I really want to use this game to build the girls’ confidence and give them the opportunity to try skills they might not be as confident in,” Higgs said. “If we are able to get a big lead on Centennial in the first or second inning, that gives me the confidence that the girls will improve those skills.”

Senior Jasmine Evanish seeks to improve some of her skills in the game, specifically in hitting.

“A goal I have for this game is to get runners home to bring the score up,” Evanish said. “I really want to use that situational hitting that we’ve improved on a lot.”

Evanish is feeling confident going into the game Friday night, hoping for a win against the Titans. 

“I’m excited and motivated to compete,” she said. “Even though we’ve beaten this team before we won’t be complacent and I’m eager to give my best effort for my teammates.”
