Softball allows Western Sierra 31 runs due to lack of players

After losing their first matchup against the Western Sierra Collegiate Academy Wolves on April 25, the girls’ softball team was looking for revenge in their second matchup on April 27.

The team was unable to find it however, suffering a 0-31 loss via mercy rule in five innings..

One of the reasons was the team was without several players, including senior Alexa Mathisen.

“Without Alexa, a lot of us were forced to play out of position,” senior captain Avi Bhullar said.

The team sought help from junior Esme Bruce-Romo and sophomore Yanele Ledesma.

“Although we lost, I enjoyed being out there with the team,” Ledesma said. “Right now I’m just learning and trying to get a feel for the game.”

With two new players and players playing out of position, the girls were already at a major disadvantage.

And it didn’t help that they had to face Western Sierra pitcher Hannah La Gabed.

La Gabed is 10-1 with a 0.34 ERA and, including her two games against Country Day, three no-hitters.

Although the Cavs faced unfortunate circumstances, they will look to turn it around against the Faith Christian Lions on Tuesday, May 2, at 3:30 p.m at Howe Park.
