Girl’s softball ends season on a low note

Varsity head coach Adrian Wagner lead the girl’s softball team to a 15-4 record resulting in a first place standing of section 6AAA. The girl’s season got off to a tremendous start with a colossal win of 10-0 against Mound Westonka. Following by the first victory came an even greater win of 18-8 against Murray County Central. Along with the more immense triumphs, the BSM girl’s softball team won against St. Louis Park scoring 29-5. “There were definitely a few games where the team had to come together to work harder because the opposing teams were pretty equal in skill to ours,” junior captain Maddie Houlihan said.

The team was lead by three captains: senior Molly Kopp, senior Abbey Miller and junior Maddie Houlihan. With a wide range of skill and leadership, the team has shown an immense amount of support for each other and true sisterhood throughout the team. “It’s such a fun group of girls and we never take it too seriously, we just sort of have fun and screw around. I’m really going to miss that,” Miller said.

Throughout the triumphant season, there were defeats that the BSM girl’s softball team endured. One extremely close game against Totino-Grace resulted in a 3-2 loss after a close encounter. “We worked as hard as possible and unfortunately it was an unlucky game, you can’t win them all,” Houlihan said.

After playing against the former North Suburban Conference champions, Spring Lake Park High School, the girls faced a loss of 0-11, but they kept their heads up and rebounded with a 12-2 victory the following game against Bloomington Kennedy. “The team just didn’t show up to play, but it was learned from,” Miller said.

On May 23, the team ended their season with a 3-2 loss to Wayzata. After an impressive year the team finished with a record of 13-6.
