Recap: Softball Reflects on Regular Season

The Warriors softball regular season is over, ending with a 7-17 record. The team had some highlights of the season, especially during their three-game stretch throughout September 18 and September 21. Sophomore pitcher Kerrigan Wonder felt the team really improved this season with a few big factors wins late in the season.

“I like how we run-ruled Duchesne on our senior night,” Wonder said. “I just think it was very special for the seniors.” 

Head coach TJ Eadus reflects on their entire regular season and what has been efficient for them. 

“Some positives from the season going into the postseason is we have set a team record with home runs, very close to breaking an individual home run record and team batting average,”  Eadus said. “We’ve scored a lot of runs on teams that in the past Westside has never scored on.” 

 Wonder feels the main positive of the season is the team bonding and relationships built.

“I think the biggest takeaway from the season is that as a team we all got closer together,” Wonder said. “I think that is special because if we didn’t play softball I don’t think all of us would’ve even talked or gotten to know each other.”

After losing to Bellevue East 7-2 on September 28, Westside would go up against Bellevue West for their final regular-season game. The Warriors and Thunderbirds would go back and forth in the first two innings keeping it tied at two. However, a nine-run third inning by Bellevue West would blow the game open to where the Warriors couldn’t come back. The Warriors would fall with a final of 16-8 as they looked toward districts.

The Warriors will look to get back on track as they head down to Doris Bair Field in Lincoln to take on the 29-9 Lincoln East Spartans in the first round of the A-5 District Tournament.
