Tuesday, the baseball and softball teams each brought their seasons to an end after a well-fought battle to continue campaigns for state.
Softball opened with a win over Marais des Cynge Valley in the play-in game, winning 9-4. In the second game of the day they fell to Saint Marys, 5-1.
“We had a very trying season, but I was satisfied with yesterday. Of course we wanted to win, especially against Saint Marys. But they fought hard and showed a lot of improvement towards the last third of the season, so hopefully that will energize us for next year,” coach Joe Dee Tarbutton said on the end of the season.
Baseball lost to Troy 7-6 in an extra inning.
“We battled. We had a really great opportunity to come away with the win, but a couple plays here and there that we look back and we want back. Overall, I’m very proud of the way they played, the way they battled, even after Troy kind of made their comeback. Hopefully we can build on that and take it into the next season,” baseball coach Lance Fuller said.
Both teams are graduating three seniors.
“This season’s environment was a lot less negative compared to last year’s team. The seniors were more supportive and encouraging of the underclassman, and I think it helped build a stronger bond between the team. We were a lot more relaxed this year and it was a lot more fun,” sophomore Izzy Wright said.
