The Girls Softball team had a slow start to the season,  and coach Clark wanted them to improve their game.

“ We need to learn to play a complete from start to finish,” Cark said, “We play great for four or five innings and then have a let down inning. This means we can play with anyone, until we do not make the plays to compete.”

Winning three of their last four games, put their overall season record to 4-19. Winning against St. Pius 14-8, William Chrisman 13-4, and  their last schedule game, against Ruskin 17-0, where junior Abbie Mason threw a perfect game.

“It was really nice not having to throw a lot of pitches,” Mason said. “Its a boost of confidence knowing I can do it. I got a lot of congratulations the next day.”

The team will have all but one member back next year.

“ I’m looking forward to keeping the same girls next season. We’ve been together for one year, and we have built our relationship for next season,” Mason said.

The lone senior on the team, CheyAnne Neilson has loved her time as being a part of the hornet’s softball team.

“Softball has always been something that I enjoyed, its a way of life for me. I like coming out and representing Northtown softball, and being a part of the team,” Neilson said. “Ill always remember coming out on to the field before sunrise and setting up the field and how much it sucked, but I know that ill miss it.”

Neilson leaves the softball team with advice for the returning softball players for next season,

“I want them to come out and have a mindset that they can beat anyone that they play.”
