Softball starts an exciting season


Varsity softball played its first game of the season March 17, winning 15-0 against Spokane. They should be seeing tougher competition in league play throughout the season.
The girls have been playing together for a long time and will have lots of challenges coming up. Kristen Delp, LHS varsity coach, said she has high hopes for the season. “I expect a lot of senior leadership. We have a great group of seniors this year that have been through it all really,” Delp noted. “We had several hits to score our 14 runs. Kate had 3, Caiti Reel had 3, Taryn Barney and Tori Purington had 2 hits, and Phoenix Pea, Jenna Barney and Evanne Douglass each had one hit.”
Douglass said she is enjoying the season. “I am excited about getting to play with all of the girls and go to state! We are all really close together, so it’s really fun being able to play on the field with each other.” She felt that their first game went well. “The first league game is always tough because we finally see competition again. There was a lot of action at second base and the rest of the infield, I think that we executed our plays well.”
