Girls JV softball putting together a strong season

The girls softball team started their 2011 season off great beating many schools that were not in their conference. They were able to beat our arch-rivals Burlingame which was a very big accomplishment for the team in representing our school. They had a good preseason which was good practice for them to prepare for the regular season. In the preseason, they beat Sacred Heart Cathedral, which was a confidence booster for the girls out there considering that Sacred Heart Cathedral is a private school. They also beat Sequoia, and other schools which was good practice for the upcoming season.

Many of the girls have their own personal goals for this season since half of the team may be moving up to varsity next year and will want to be ready for the next level and be ready for the much more skilled varsity players. “I want to improve on my batting,” said third-basemen, catcher, and sophomore Robyn Fong.

“I want to work on my fielding and be able to give more confidence to my teammates by pumping them up and help our team more as much as I possibly can,” said first-basemen, right-fielder, and freshman Kat Fadrilian.

The team captains role on any team is to give their teammates confidence and pump them up. It is also their job to control the team and act as a type of coach, not necessarily bossing the team around, but guiding the team and giving tips to any players who don’t know what to do. Sophomores Marisa Neher, and Alex Sheldon are the people who have to fulfill those commitments as team captains for the girls softball team this season. “Our role as team captain is to make sure that everybody is doing their best. Our team goal is to have a good time, get along, and have everybody give it their best,” agreed the two sophomore captains.

The team looks to improve on their weaknesses and use their strengths against their opponents to win as many games as they can. “We need to work on having better concentration on the game and stay focused on in the game,” said Neher.

“Our strengths on the team are that we are really good at getting along with each other and we always work hard and give it our all during practice and in the games,” said Sheldon.

We wish the girls the best of luck throughout the rest of the season.
