Softball team makes strides

Kennedy Hayes, Staff writer

As the varsity softball team enters the postseason, the Chargers have been trading off wins and losses gracefully.

Junior first baseman Amber Brooks says the season is going better than she expected and the team has improved greatly from last season.
“This year’s team seems to play and get along a lot better than last year,” she said.
Fellow junior Jennifer Romero is the team’s catcher, playing a position she never did before.

“It was weird at first to start catching, but then I got used to it,” Romero said. “I still need to work more on my skills, but my pitchers and I are going to a camp to help train so we can make next season even

As solid as this season has been for the Chargers, there is much optimism for the future.
“Our underclassmen have great potential and time to get better,” Brooks  said. “Rachel Brokenshire has great potential to be even better.”
The Chargers will also lose some seniors, as well.
“Tiana (Little) is a great second baseman who rarely makes errors,” Romero said. “I’m excited for the rest of the season and for next year, too.”
The Chargers are currently playing in the GCAC conference tournament. They will begin IHSA postseason play next week, with seeds and pairings coming out May 12 and 13.
