The Lake Central varsity softball team went up against the Lowell Red Devils at Highland on Monday, May 25.  This was the girls’ first sectional game, and the Indians ended up winning it 7-0.  Annabel Karberg pitched all seven innings of the game.  The girls will now advance in Sectionals.

“I think [the game today] went really well.  We had a lot of energy, and everyone was focused.  Everyone did great,” Karberg (12) said.

Although the girls took home the first win of the sectionals tournament, there are still things that could be improved for the future games.

“We need to be able to get in more runners off the bases because we leave a lot of girls on bases, and we could have scored more,” Karberg (12) said.

The next game of Sectionals will be held on Wednesday, May 27.  The girls have high hopes of winning as long as they play just as well as they did today. The game will be played at Highland.

“I think we will do [well] as long as everyone stays focused and works hard. Then we will be [alright],” Karberg (12) said.
