Girls Softball rounds the bases
After clinching 3rd place in the Pacific Coast League (PCL) last year, Northwood’s Varsity Softball team hopes to continue on the path of improvement and build upon its raw talent.
The Northwood Softball program has been very successful in PCL for the past few years. With a majority of non-seniors on the team, the future looks bright for the T-Wolves as they continue to develop their skills in practices and games. The team is directing their focus this year to teamwork by uniting their individual strengths.
“We are an overall young team with lots of potential, and our goal for this year is to work hard and translate that potential on the field to get us some wins,” junior Angelique Besnard said. “We can only do that by working together as a team and picking each other up, which is a big thing that we are working on this year.”
The strong chemistry on the team brings the members together, on and off the field. The T-Wolves are able to carry their cohesive team dynamic into games and come through with impressive wins.
“This is honestly the closest team I have ever been on. We have so many inside jokes that we crack on and off the field, and we always know how to make each other laugh when we make mistakes. It always lightens the mood when needed,” junior Kaitlyn Lologo said.
The team is working hard during practices to perform their best in games to earn the chance to compete in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF).
“Softball is a mental game, and I know we have the potential and skill to win,” junior Sophia James said. “So what we hope to do is take each game one inning at a time, one swing at a time, and one ball at a time.”
