Signs of a Streak

The Cowboys softball team showed the emergence of some young talent and heavy hitters during their first week of play.   Returning to the infield this year is the pitcher-catcher team of senior co-captain Madeline Juergens and sophomore Skylar Wolski.  Backing them up along the bases is sophomore Emma Jacquemin (1st), juniors Michaela Fetter (2nd) and Reagan Raymer (3rd) and senior co-captain Allison Golden (SS).  Their back-up in the field are juniors Reily Boss, Sammi Campbell, sophomore Cammie Miller and freshmen Shelby Fritz and Isabel Coyle.
The Softball Cowboys were a half inning away from an exciting 3-0 start last Monday. Two of the three games were against league opponent Indian Hill, facing a hard-throwing, very experienced senior pitcher.  Combined with the cold weather it took awhile for Wyoming to shake the opening day jitters.  Freshman Shelby Fritz recorded her first two hits, as well as 2 RBIs.  Emma Jacquemin showed off some power, one hopping to the right field fence.  Unfortunately, the game ended in the bottom of the 7th with Indian Hill scoring 2 handing the Cowboys a 7-6 opening game loss.
The middle game of the week was probably the best overall game played.  Playing against Cincinnati Christian, the hitting came alive.  Skylar Wolski hit two homeruns and single scoring 5.   Reagan Raymer also scored a homerun and two doubles, logging in 2 RBIs of her own.  Madeline Juergens hit well with a double and racked up 2 RBIs of her own.   A solid Cowboy defense shut down a hard-hitting Cincinnati Christian team gave the Cowboys a 13-6 victory.
The second game against Indian Hill Wednesday saw Wyoming solidly in control through six innings with a 4-0 lead entering the 7th.  The Cowboy’s scored first when Sammi Campbell was singled in after hitting a double to right center field.   Although it appeared the game might get away after 2 hits, 2 walks and an error left the tying run on first with the league’s top hitter at the plate.  A running catch by Shelby in right sealed the 4-2 victory for senior Madeline Juergens.
The Cowboys have had a rain delay with three consecutive rainouts so the Wyoming Cowboys still have a long but exciting season ahead. The Cowboys are getting off to a strong start and we hope to see that continuing in the upcoming games.
Come out and cheer the Girls on.  I'm sure they'd appreciate your support.  
Not sure where to go?  
Let your eyes adjust for a moment as you look past the glittering new diamond and you'll begin to see the softball field just behind Bob Lewis Stadium.
