On Thursday, September 19, the New Haven softball team won 15-5 against the Hermann Bearcats at home.
The starters were Madison Langenberg, Meagan Holtmeyer, Mackenzie Wilson, Brande Kubiak, Lexi Sidwell, Emilee Hinten, Lindsey Steinbeck, Brenna Langenberg, and Jessica Underwood. The alternates were Kate Dittberner and Ryan Stutzman.
The New Haven Shamrocks felt confident as they remembered last year’s game against Hermann when they beat them 23-7.
The athletes were asked how they did hitting wise and freshman Brenna Langenberg said, “Better than usual. My bunt was the best.”
Freshman Lindsey Steinbeck made an amazing double play at second, catching a linedrive and throwing a girl out at first.
Sophomore Mackenzie Wilson threw two girls out at second from home plate.
When the girls were asked what their best play was during the game, freshman Kate Dittberner responded, “I had a pop fly hit to me in the outfield and I caught it and got the [last] out.”
Over half the girls said they’re playing better as a team.
Great job and good luck in the future, Shamrocks!
