Softball crushes Louisville 16-0

By Robbie Loeb

Following a 4-0 start to the season, the softball team has lost six out of its last 10 games.

“I think we got a little too comfortable with our wins at the beginning fo the season,” Lauren Li ’12 said. “We need to approach every game the same way no matter which team we face.”

The team posts an overall record of 8-6 and 2-2 in league. The Wolverines played Notre Dame on Tuesday, but results were not available at press time.

They beat Flintridge Sacred Heart 2-1 last month for their first league win.

After two league losses to Alemany and Notre Dame, the team bounced back against Louisville, winning 16-0, its second largest win margin this season.

“After those rough couple of league games we had, a game like the one against Louisville was much needed,” Li said. “We took advantage of the pitcher every inning and had strong defense — that’s a recipe for a win. This isn’t a sign, but rather evidence that we are capable of winning.”

“We went up to bat with our game plan in mind and hit the ball very well,” Emily Louy ’11 said.

With five games left in league, the team is confident that it can do well in the second half of the season.

“I know that we can take this momentum and carry it through to our next games,” Louy said.

The team sits in fourth place in the league table as of press time, two games back of Chaminade.

The team plays Chaminade tomorrow, who has yet to be scored on in their league games.
