This past weekend the softball team concluded its fall season with a scrimmage against an area team.
The fall practices included morning workouts and afternoon practices. While the softball team won’t play in competitive games until the spring, their work for next season has already begun.
The softball team has two returning players, Brittany Castro and Jessica Mollner, and seven freshmen who will receive significant playing time. Lone returning senior, Mollner, had high praise for the group of freshmen. “The freshmen are all really great hitters. I think every single one of them got a hit [in the scrimmage].”
This squad worked out at 6:30 a.m. four mornings a week while practicing from 3-6 p.m. in the afternoons. The team also hit on Thursdays from 9-11:30 a.m.
Mollner said that the workouts were worth the effort. “The scrimmage [on Saturday] made all those morning workouts and long practices so worth it. It was so fun getting to play with the new freshmen and seeing how much potential our team has compared to last year.”
The Lady Crusaders will take the field in early February while their conference schedule will begin in late March.
