The CVHS varsity softball team was victorious in the game on April 15 against Tennyson High School, ending with a score of 14-6.
The Trojans started out strong and were successful in taking the lead. The team members cheered on their teammates when they went up to bat, shouting catchy and creative words of encouragement.
Since the Trojans were winning, all the non-starter players were given a chance to play. This is the reason for having three different pitchers during the game: freshman Leilani Huey, senior Olivia Aragon, and junior Tess Palmer. Huey pitched the first two innings, and Aragon pitched the third inning. Palmer pitched the rest of the game.
During the sixth inning, there were a few fielder errors, and Tennyson was able to score some runs. However, the Trojans kept fighting and maintained their lead.
During the sixth inning, sophomore Sara Ward hit the ball out of the field and successfully scored a home run. Her teammates gathered at home plate, cheering loudly and surrounding her when she ran in.
After a long game, the Trojans were awarded with a hard-fought win.
“The season has been going really well,” said junior Allison Decker. “We have a strong team.”
