IHS softball swinging into the season

By SYDNEY ANDERSON

IHS softball is back for the Spring Season and the varsity team is currently going strong. With more games to come, more excitement and competition is expected. 

The team practices everyday after school, working on drills to help with batting practice and fielding. Practices are led by head coach Harold Wilson and with assistant coaches Holly Myers and Mike Zimmerman. 

The team has had an incredible season, going 11-3 overall. The team has been doing well, with only two losses in the section. “My softball season is going great so far, hence our winning record. I am expecting our team to go far in the playoffs this season and win many games,” one of the varsity pitchers, Addie Stossel comments. 

The team has had some tough competition this season, but this isn’t intimidating the girls. The players work hard through practice and have high hopes to do well. With big games, the girls also hope to make memories.

Junior Ella Myers says, “I am looking forward to creating friendships with my teammates and playing Knoch on our senior night.”

The team has become very supportive of one another, throughout preseason and so far this season. Anna Carnovale, freshman on the team, said “One thing I am looking forward to this season is the bus rides with the team. It’s such a fun experience to grow closer as a team.” She believes that developing good connections with your teammates, on and off the field, is critical to a successful team. 

Knoch, being the only undefeated team in the section, will most likely be the teams biggest competition to win the section title. One of the girls’ final home games will be against Knoch will also be during their senior night, so be sure to attend and support the big game and celebrate their seniors. 

This year, this team has been doing extremely well. With new teammates, the players hope to make it to the playoffs and hopefully continue a strong winning streak. With the season being over half way over, attending an IHS softball game is great support to a successful team.
