Softball – Girls Varsity vs Marianapolis Preparatory School – Away

Varsity Softball

This game was a bit of a roller coaster ride, with some truly impressive high points for the team that demonstrated our ability to respond to a challenge.

We began the game with some well-manufactured runs, each team member playing to her strengths and skills at the plate. A walk for Mackenzie Caruso ’22 and a hit-by-pitch for Kyra Dunnirvine ’23 gave us 2 quick runners on base, a good recipe for runs. Lexi Vail ’22 followed at the plate, crushing a line drive double to right center to bring in the first 2 runs. We followed suit in the 3rd inning when a series of patient, prudent walks (7 walks, to be precise), as well as some slammed, sacrifice grounders from Lexi and Brie Toedt ’21 helped us bridge the gap made by Marianapolis in the bottom of the 1st. In the 5th inning, Josie Pinero ’20 had a nice chip up the middle, beating the throw to first with some lightning quick footwork.
Despite some setbacks in the 1st and 4th innings, the Wyverns made some great plays on the defensive side of things. Jocelyn Ram ’20 made the quick decision and quick movements necessary to get a runner out at home on a grounder to 3rd in the 1st inning, saving us from another run. Kaylee Diaz ’19 had a clutch catch of a line drive in right field in the 3rd inning that momentarily stopped the other team’s momentum with the stop of the ball. Gabi Abramson ’22 entered to pitch in the 4th inning, with Kyra moving to shortstop, and brought us two skillfully orchestrated, back-to-back strikeouts in the 5th inning.
