The girls softball team picked up a big victory on Thursday, defeating Mt. Lebanon, 9-3.

This win brings the Highlanders to a 2-1 section record as the team continues to chase its fourth section title. Players knew what improvements they needed to make come away with the win, senior Taylor Dadig said.

“We had better base running than last time,” Dadig said, referring to a loss on Wednesday to Peters Township.

The team was able to take advantage of great offensive play with base runners in nearly every inning. The team was also able to capitalize on its chances at bat.

“Overall we hit well as a team,” Dadig said. “Allison Murray had two home runs.”

Moving forward the team knows what they have to do to keep winning.

“We need to work on bunting and situational plays,” Dadig said.

The girls softball team plays today at home against Bethel.
