Highland Softball kicked off the season with a tough game against Highmark. Malena Benson pitched remarkable opening season game threatening strike outs every at bat. She also managed two powerful hits for both of her at bats.
She was backed by a tight knit infield held up by Dawnavin Frye at 3rd Marley McMillen at Short Stop,Amaya Gonzalez securing 2nd, who made an awesome catch on a hard hit line drive, Maddi Holland covering 1st and Celeste Castro working over time as catcher and lead off batter.
Outfield was handled by Hailey Davis, Katie Santos, and Genesis Chavez.
Our first at bat saw runs by Celeste, Hailey, Dawnavin and Marley. Our team was held together by relentless cheers and support by our subs, and managers! Nice work hikers we are ready to dominate!
