“It was a great confidence builder for us as a team. With missing last year,
the girls were hungry to get to this game. They were aggressive and
played well. Eyleen and Jenna had great performances. Eyleen coming back
from last playing her freshman year and looked solid with a bat. Jenna
pitched well and had a great game hitting as well. We still have a lot to
work on to get ready for league, but this will help girls confidence in
their ability moving forward, now that they see all the hard work start
paying off.”
