Trojans News · Softball Update 5/4-5/8

It’s been a busy 5 days for the WC softball team as we have played 5 games against quality opponents. We participated in the Twin Lake Invitational for the first time and lost to host Twin Lakes on Friday night. Caitlynn Brigman, Esaleigh Hauptli, and Lily Williams all had singles in the loss while Emily Pilarski struckout 4. Saturday morning we opened with 3A Maconaquah and got off to a slow start allowing 6 runs in the first 2 innings. Jillian Hauptli was 3-4 with a double in the loss. We finished the day with a tough 2A Andrean team. The Trojans couldn’t get the bats going in the defeat. Monday night WC hosted 4th ranked Morgan Twp. The Cherokees proved to be deserving of that ranking beating the host Trojans. The WC defense provided too many opportunities to their guests in the loss. Emma Nielsen led the offense with 2 hits. The schedule didn’t get any easier as we traveled to Knox Tuesday night who is ranked 6th in 2A. After spotting the home team a 3-0 lead in the first, the defense stiffened and Jillian Hauptli pitched well but unfortunately the offense could only produce 2 runs and the Trojan fell to the Redskins 3-2. Lily Williams produced the only Trojan runs with a 2 RBI single in the 6th inning. Jillian Hauptli pitched well going the distance striking out 3.
The Trojans will host Pioneer on Thursday and will honor our only Senior Zoe Yockey. Come join us for the final home game of the 2018 season as first pitch is at 5pm.
