Coaching Staff Comments:

Tonight was our home opener as well as the start of league play, and we defensively made the plays we needed to compete in both games. The difference between game one and game two is primarily our offensive presence. In game one we hit gaps, made solid contact and came with an aggressive approach at the plate. In game two we missed some of those areas and it led to miss opportunities with girls in scoring position. Our league is a continuous battle of both ends of the field and we knew tonight would be the start of that battle.


Our seniors continue to lead in the areas that set us apart. Rylee is our consistent catalyst on offense, Tori and Hannah have a great connection in the pitcher- catcher combo, Addie takes away the left side infield and Rylee and Laynie cover and direct traffic in the OF. If we continue to grow around them we will be in good shape. The Shamrocks continue league play with PW and Bath next week.
