The girls varsity softball team has had a very rough season so far. With only 2-5, it was uncertain that they would beat West Potomac this past week.

Their only wins have been against Falls Church and Thomas Jefferson, two relatively easy competitorsAnd their other games, for that matter, have not been as successful. On March 14, they lost 14-3 against Stonewall Jackson, than lost 13-14 against Fairfax, 18-5 against Woodson, 18-0 against Edison, and their most recent game on April 2, they were defeated by West Potomac 12-1.

“West Potomac was a very good competitor,” freshman Holly Walridge said. “Their outfield was very good and that made it difficult to score.”

Although their results have been disappointing, it is very important to consider that the team has versed some tough components who have very strong players and have still been able to remain competitive.

“A lot of the teams we play have a lot of really good players,” Waldridge said. “Hopefully with more practice we can turn the season around.”

It was been a bumpy start to their season and all we can do is hope that they worker harder in practice so they can get those results, improve their record, and be prepared for the district tournament at the end of the season.
