Softball sweeps at home

After a few rocky games against Rossville last Tuesday, the Lady Indians softball team redeemed themselves with two wins against Highland Park Monday night.

A weekend full of freezing weather threatened the game, however the clouds cleared enough for the sun to come out. Not being the first time the team has had to deal with facing rain delays in their season already, the softball schedule was thrown off slightly. With several games postponed, the Lady Indians have not had as much game experience as hoped and were eager to get on the field.

However, the Highland Park doubleheader did exemplify the team’s offensive talents. Starting strong was monumental and set the precedent for the rest of the night.

“We got our bats going both games and it worked out well for us,” senior Anna Batt said. “I think that once we had that momentum in the beginning we were able to keep it up for the rest of the game. We just tried to have as much fun as we could.”

Batt contributed to another attribute of their success, their defense. Pitching for the Lady Indians, Batt pitched a perfect game. Due to this, the Indians were able to shut out Highland Park 15-0 to start off the night.

“It was a pretty cool feeling,” Batt said. “It doesn’t happen too often.”

The Indians face Washburn Rural this Friday at Washburn.
