The Owensville softball tournament was held on Saturday, September 15th. The Shamrocks played against Owensville and South Calloway. The Shamrocks won their game against Owensville 6-1 but lost against South Calloway 11-3.
“We played our best, even though it was hot. That's all that matters, just us doing our best on the field,” says one of the players.
Ryan Stutzman, a freshman on the junior varsity, pitched for most of the games and traded off with Madison Langenberg, a sophomore on the varsity team, for the rest of the games.
“The team spirit was fairly decent. We try to always keep our heads up and communicate with each other,” says one of the players. “The second game was not how we planned it to go, which happens sometimes, but we tried our best to keep battling and ended up scoring a few at the end.”
Most of the players surveyed say that they did well and hope to do even better further on in the season. One athlete says, “I’m sure that we will do well with wrapping up the season. We’ve worked hard this year. We did our best and that’s all that matters.”
Districts are going to be held soon and the season is drawing to a close. Their last game will be sometime in October.
We wish the Shamrocks luck through the rest of their season!
