Softball in the Swing of Things

With a record of 6-7, the Girls Softball team is working even harder to get to state. When Angela Cordova, Senior, hit her first home run against Overland on September 11th, the team’s spirits started to rise.


Junior, Aly Pacheco who has been a Varsity player for two years, says “Our team came together and with the new coaches, the program has improved.”

Pacheco says personally she needs to improve on her hitting and she hopes to hit everyday.

Aly also adds “Softball is about not giving up, working hard everyday, and having a positive mindset.”


Selena Gochenour is also pleased with how this season has been going. Selena looks up to her teammates, especially Angela Cordova and Kaylee Adams.


Gochenour says “The team is very solid and has a good foundation, but as a team will still need to improve on is working hard till the very end and not giving up.”


Selena says her motto while playing on the field is  “Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.”


The Lady Raiders have a home game tonight at 4:30 against Aurora Central. Next week is the game everyone looks forward to as they will play their rival team, Gateway on the 8th of October at Rangeview High School at 4:30.
