Although the softball team has not won a game this season, their chances looked good in their matchup against the Faith Christian Lions on May 2.
The Lions are only 2-9 this season, which is the worst record for an opponent the Cavs have faced this season.
Unfortunately, the girls were unable to pull out the win, losing 1-11.
One explanation is that the girls were without juniors Lea Gorny and Esme Bruce-Romo and freshman Savannah Rosenzweig. And senior Alexa Mathisen couldn’t show up until the second inning due to a doctor’s appointment.
Since so many players were missing, senior Avi Bhullar said that the team had to bring on extras.
“We had (sophomore) Lia (Kaufman) play again,” Bhullar said.
Although the game ended in a loss, Bhullar praised the team’s hard work and effort.
“Everyone played really well,” Bhullar said. “Even though we didn’t win, our fielding and awareness has gotten a lot better.”
Bhullar also praised sophomore Sophie Naylor for her pitching.
Naylor pitched the whole game and thought that the team’s defense was solid.
“We did a (better) job of getting people out,” Naylor said. “Our innings ended quickly, but we just have to work on our throws.”
Check back for the results of the Cavs’ game on May 4, against the Buckingham Charter Knights at 4 p.m.
