Coaches Comments – "We didn't exactly get the start we wanted on Friday night, our pitcher gets hit with a line drive in the first inning and we made some mental mistakes. However, I was pleased with the team's Perseverance and determination to overcome obstacles."


"In regards to Lizzy, I can't begin to tell you how tough that young lady is to stay in the game and pitch four solid innings for us after taking a shot off the knee"


"Skylar had a big triple for us early on to really get us going. She has really embraced the clean-up position."


"Brooke Harvey is a darn good pitcher that would be many team's best pitcher. We are extremely confident in her abilities on the mound and she continues to get better each time out."
