“We played much better, they came together as a team and played really well,” said Asst. Coach Alisa McElhatten following North Lake’s loss to Mountain View 14-7 on Tuesday, April 8.
Despite the loss, the team has showed steadfast improvement and are practicing hard, leaving coaches encouraged. In the first game of the season the team was left with a short roster and nearly impossible scenario starting players who had never practiced in certain position resulting in a bad rout, but against Mountain View only one player was missing leading to a much stronger team effort.
“We had our regular pitcher Hollie Fritz, which helped immensely,” said McElhatten. “Batting is starting to come around, we didn’t get walks but finally started hitting the ball. Practice is starting to pay off, and most importantly everyone had really good attitudes, were happy, and encouraging. It all clicked.”
With North Lake finally getting up to speed in the young season the Cowgirls will seek their first win of the season when they play at Lakeview on Thursday, April 17, at 4 p.m
