Following a double-header sweep of Allderdice on Tuesday, the girls softball team is preparing to take on Chartiers Valley today.

Baldwin won the first game on Tuesday 10-0, with the game ending in the fifth inning due to the “mercy rule.” The score in the second game was 30-0 and that game was ended in the third inning for the same reason. Baldwin scored 26 runs in the first inning of the second game, but the mercy rule does not go into effect until the third inning.

Sophomore Beatrice Cook said sophomore Lindsay Bonetti and senior Addie Tagg were standout performers for the Highlanders.

“Addie pitched dominantly as always and Lindsay was hitting the ball as strongly as ever,” Cook said.

The team has worked on focus and precision in hitting and catching.  

“We really wanted to improve on our communication skills,” junior Cassie Carlson said.  

The Highlanders know they have to keep working, starting with today’s game.

“We are rolling right now and we have to keep our confidence and motivation for the next upcoming game,” Cook said.
