Ending their season with a league record of 3-7 and an overall record of 8-16 prevented the softball team from entering CIF.

The team played their first league game in a close loss to Chaminade 1-2. In their second game, the team scored a victory over Louisville 23-1, the team lost its third game to Alemany 0-10.

“It was hard fought game, especially at home,” right fielder Arielle Basich ’11 said.

The team participated in two tournaments, the Lancaster High Desert Tournament and the Charter Oak Tournament. In the Lancaster High Desert Tournament, the team had two wins and two losses. In the Charter Oak Tournament, the team had one win and three losses.

Following the Charter Oak Tournament the team played seven league games, bringing its record to 3-7. The team won its fourth game against Flintridge 9-2 but would continue to lose their next two games to Chaminade and Notre Dame. However, the Wolverines beat Louisville again 8-2. They lost their last three games, playing their final game against Flintridge on Thursday May 13.

“Losing to Flintridge was a disappointing loss. We beat them the first time but the second game was very different,” said Basich.

The team is losing five senior players, including starting pitcher Christina Cavanaugh ’10.
