Even 34 runs aren’t enough for softball team to take home win

The softball team hangs out in the dugout.

Although the girls softball team scored a total of 34 runs in two games, they still were unable to pull out a single win.

The Cavs began the first game of their doubleheader against the Sacramento Adventist Academy Capitals on April 20.

Although they scored a season-high of 12 runs, the team suffered a 12-22 defeat  because of a 9-0 run the Capitals went on in the second inning.

Nonetheless, the Cavs regrouped to try and win their second game.

This time, the Cavs matched the Capitals’ previous total of 22 runs, but the Capitals answered, winning 22-32.

Since both teams were inexperienced, there were a lot of walks that led to runs, according to sophomore Bella Mathisen,

“We got walked a lot,” Mathisen said. “And when we got hits, their infield wasn’t great at catching, so we were able to score a bunch.”

Due to  the high scoring by the Capitals, coach Scott Galati hopes the team can improve defensively.

“We had a lot of errors,” Galati said. “And the fact we had a doubleheader didn’t help.”

Although the Cavs took two losses, they will look to bounce back on Tuesday, April 25, against the Western Sierra Collegiate Academy Wolves at Western Sierra at 3 p.m.
