weather and their timing at the plate has  suffered as a result. “Our bats were slow in the first game,” added senior co-captain Victoria Van Meter.

 

However, the Lady Cubs found some rhythm in game two and scored 7 runs. Down 12-0 in the fourth inning, “we got our bats going and rallied,” said Van Meter who was 1 for 3 with a double and a walk. Senior 1st baseman Gabi Moore was 2 for 4 with a double, sophomore Kylee Savio was 2 for 2 with a double and 2 walks and junior Kylie Girard was 1 for 3 with a double.

Sophomore Jasmine Todd made her high school pitching debut in game 2 and did well, according to her battery-mate Van Meter.

“We are our own worst enemy at times,” said Coach Todd, referring to the errors. “We still have a lot of little things to work on and we are getting there now that we can practice outside.”
