Although the varsity girls were off to a rough start because of losing their first handful of games,  by winning three of the games played so far, the girls are slowly improving.  

This past week the girls had two games; One game was on September the 6th, against Brighton, “a top team in the league,” according to the assistant varsity coach, Mike Hamilton.

With Brighton being recognized as one of the top teams, the girls knew this wasn’t going to be an easy game.

“I knew going in it, it was going to be hard,” said senior Selena Gochenour.

The game didn’t go so well for the team; they came out of it with a loss of 15-0.

“We didn’t play well, we didn’t compete well in this game,” stated Coach Hamilton.

“There was nothing more the we could do,” said Gochenour.

Since this year’s varsity softball team is fairly new and young, to win they have to work as a team.

On September 8th, the girls had their second game of the week against Hinkley High School. They pulled through and came out of it with a win, with a score of 17-2.

“Again, we knew what kind of team we were going against,” said senior Ally Pacheco.

Coach Hamilton said, “ We did fine in this game, this team didn’t have as much talent. I’m happy with the girls. They are young but getting better.

Yesterday,  the Raiders beat their rival Gateway, 21-1 and they go confidently into their next game against Prairie View at 4:30 p.m. today at home.
