Adam Sebastian ‘19: The varsity Softball team looked to improve their 2-7 record with three total games this past week. The team traveled to Eisenhower High School and hosted both L’Anse Creuse North High School and St. Clair High School. Despite some communication issues and defensive struggles to start the season, the team continues to show improvements they can build upon later in the season.
The Bulldogs began the play week facing the Eagles of Eisenhower High School. On a humid 80 degree day, the Bulldogs lost to the Eagles by a score of 6-2.
“We had a couple of defensive errors and our bats weren’t that great,” Jordyn Chapman ‘19 said.
The Bulldogs played very well despite the pressure of playing their rivals and the hot weather stating it didn’t affect them.
“[The weather] had no effect on us,” Chapman said. “ It made us more excited to play without long sleeves finally.
The team hosted L’Anse Creuse North High School on Wednesday, May 2, for a makeup of the originally scheduled April 17 game. The Bulldogs won the game, 15-14, thanks to the team’s on fire bats and two home runs from sophomore stand out Savannah Snarski ‘20.
“Savannah Snarski was definitely the best player this week because her bat was on fire and she played very well in the outfield and at catcher,” Chapman said.
Due to the inclement weather and building problems, the team’s Thursday game against St. Clair High School was postponed to an unannounced date.
After another week of play, the Bulldog’s record sits at 3-8 on the season. Despite this week’s 1-1 record the games signified to the team what needed improvement.
“[We need to improve] our ability to mesh together both on and off the field,” Chapman said.
The Bulldogs open next week away from home against the Falcons of Henry Ford II High School and finish the week hosting the Tars of Anchor Bay High School.
