After having high hopes and a positive attitude toward their last game, the softball team fell short, losing 4-3 against the Lebanon Trail Trail Blazers on Wednesday night. “It was a little disappointing that we weren’t able to take one last win,” head coach Baylea Higgs said. “But the girls still had plenty of fun so I wouldn’t say it was a horrible loss.”

After having high hopes and a positive attitude toward their last game, the softball team fell short, losing 4-3 against the Lebanon Trail Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

“It was a little disappointing that we weren’t able to take one last win,” head coach Baylea Higgs said. “But the girls still had plenty of fun so I wouldn’t say it was a horrible loss.”

The team was not able to start off strong, striking out multiple times in two innings, which might have affected their game, according to Higgs.

“We started off really slow, and the girls weren’t able to recover quickly, which was a big factor in the result of the game,” she said. 

Junior Ainslee Palmer was hopeful for a win, but does not think that the season was unsuccessful.

“We really learned a lot this season, despite the lack of wins,” Palmer said. “This team has really grown since we first started playing this season, and knowing that is a success in itself.”

Palmer is upset about the loss, but hopes to take every losing game as a lesson and a learning opportunity.

“I personally really wanted to win on Wednesday, but things didn’t go as planned and that’s okay,” she said. “We all still had fun and enjoyed the game so I think we ended the season well.”
