Varsity Softball Swings Into a Strong Start

From the beginning of the season, the varsity softball team was expected to be a good one. The team is made up of eight underclassmen and five upperclassmen. The team captains are Gina Titus, Christina Dressel, and Allie Munier.

“This year we only have two seniors on the team but we are still very talented because the underclassmen have a lot of skill that we need and are really helping the team,” said senior Christina Dressel.

“I would say that we really improved from last year because we have a lot of speed and are able to catch all different types of balls. We are overall more athletic this year” said Christina Dressel. Junior Gina Titus agreed, “Our only weakness this year is just knowing the best place to throw the ball after it’s caught. We need to be able to execute our plays a lot better. Other than that, the talent is amazing this year and the team really gets along with each other which makes it easier to work as a team.”

The varsity softball league started off strong Wednesday, March 20 with a 5-1 victory against Menlo Atherton. Then, on Friday March 22 they crushed South City 10-1. So far the team has three wins and two losses. But, with six more games, they are very likely to up their record and improve on all their weaknesses. With five freshmen on varsity this year, they are full of young talent. Freshman “I feel so accomplished being able to make both varsity soccer and softball this year. I think we’re pretty good this year. Our strongest suit is probably our defense, but we need to practice our hitting,” said freshmen Taylor Doi.

Thinking realistically, the girls don’t think they’ll make it to CCS this year. “We make too many mental errors so we should practice harder”, said Freshman Raisa Magro. However, the season isn’t over yet and therefore we have still have a chance to turn around the season and make it to CCS.

Only two of the players are seniors, so luckily next year shouldn’t be too big of a transition. Next season will be even better with so many underclassmen’s experience on varsity. Taylor Doi said, “Next year, we expect the softball team to do about the same stats-wise. However, we do hope to improve our weaknesses and be better than ever.” Their last games are May h against Mills and May 8 against El Camino, both at home. So, come out to the field and cheer on your lady bearcats in their last games of the season.
