At the beginning of the season, the Journal sat down with a few of the girls’ softball players. It was time for the annual Spring Sports preview, and the Journal wanted to know their goals for the team, for themselves, for the season and how they planned to get there. It was exciting taking time to chat with the girls, however,a common theme between everyone was sensed immediately.
“We want to beat Coupeville”
“I hope we can beat Coupeville”
“We’ve got to beat Coupeville”
In a 14-13 victory, the Lady Wolverines beat the Coupeville Wolves on March 28 at Linde Community Field. The field was filled with smiles, laughs, and cheers after the five-plus-year slump was broken.
According to Nakayla Nibler, the game started out by both teams not letting the other score, and fighting pretty hard. Coupeville scored a few runs. Then the Wolverines followed suit, scoring a few runs of their own.
Jillian Otis made the last out of the game, making a final score of 14-13.
“We are so proud and happy to say we won this game,” Nibler said. A few highlights include Otis, hitting a triple, Audrey Allen hitting an infield homerun, Dani McKay with an RBI tieing the game, and a stolen home plate by Charley Lawrence-Sampson. This is such an amazing accomplishment by these girls and they deserve to be very proud. Come support both the Lady Wolverines and the Wolverines Boys Baseball on April 4 at 4:30 p.m.
