Softball – Girls Varsity vs Taft School – Away

Varsity Softball

 This was our first rematch of the season since our opener against Taft, so the Wyverns were able to assess how far we’ve come since the beginning of the season.

The Wyverns were confident stepping up to the plate and made a lot of good cuts. Our first run came in the 3rd inning when, after Olivia Pear ’21 made it on base with a walk, Kyra Dunnirvine ’23 drove a ball into the shallow dirt between pitcher and catcher, allowing Olivia to make it to 3rd and then rush home on an overthrow. That same inning, Mackenzie Caruso ’22 crushed a line drive to 3rd base that was dropped and stayed fair to give us bases loaded. Unfortunately, the rest of the potential runs were cut short by some clutch plays by our opponents.
      Compared to our first game agains Taft, the Wyverns put up an even more solid defense this time around. Lexi Vail ’22 set the tone early in the 1st inning by gunning a throw to Ava Radmanovich ’21 to shut down a steal for our first out. Kyra pulled off an impressive 8 strikeouts for the game. Overall, the team did particularly well with our bunt defense, making a few outs at 1st base with dedicated coverage and precise throws.
