Lady Red Hawks give Wildcats first loss

 

By Kendra Coons 

 

The varsity softball team had another eventful week. On Tuesday May 13, the team took on the undefeated Northview Wildcats—our conference rival—in a double header. In the first game, the Red Hawks defeated the Wildcats 6-4, giving them their first loss. Leading hitters for the game were junior shortstop Aubree Mouthaan, who went three for three with two singles, a two-run homer, and three RBI’s. Junior third baseman Alexis Lucarelli also had two hits and two RBI’s, senior centerfielder Charlie Saylor and junior designated hitter Erin Johnson also had two hits. Junior pitcher Allyson Arnold caught the game winning catch, and received a bad hand injury while catching the ball. In the second game, Cedar Springs was defeated by Northview 17-0 in the third inning. Junior pitcher Josi Whipple gained a loss for Cedar Springs.

On Thursday, May 15 Cedar Springs was scheduled to play Northview, but it was cancelled due to weather. The game was rescheduled to Friday, May 16. In this game, Northview defeated Cedar Springs once again, 15-0 in the fourth inning. Senior pitcher Michaela Kulak gained a loss for the Red Hawks. Lucarelli had the only hit for Cedar Springs. Cedar Springs lost the series 2-1.

“We played well in the first game, but lacked intensity in the next two games,” commented head coach Bill VanHorn.

The Red Hawks are now 5-8, in conference and 13-15 overall. Cedar Springs now has one week left of conference play. This week, the Red Hawks will take on the Forest Hills Northern Huskies. Cedar Springs hosted a double header against FHN on Monday, May 19 and this was senior night. Then the Red Hawks took on the Tri- Country Vikings on Tuesday, May 20. Cedar Springs finishes out their conference play with FHN at FHN with a single game. Watch for results in next week’s paper.
