Softball Swinging

Lisa Golden wraps up the week that was for the Softball team:

This past week the Wyoming softball team went 3-1, with the loss of another heartbreaker: bottom seventh, two out surrender of the winning runs to a league opponent.  The week started off on a positive note with a 14-7 victory over Norwood.  The Cowboys scored in every inning against Norwood, and although the score appeared close going into the bottom of the fifth, the Cowgirls scored three and five runs in the next two at bats to put the game away.  Every Wyoming player also either scored, or had an RBI.  Wyoming also played two games against a Mariemont team that is in a building time; and although Mariemont is part of the CHL, these games are not considered league games.  The key game of the week was at Taylor.  The Wyoming bats took a while to emerge, and the Cowboys were down 3-0 entering the 6th inning.  The defense was solid, and although one miscue allowed two runs to score, several hard hit balls were tracked down for outs, and Skylar Wolski threw one base runner out trying to steal.  Shelby Fritz continued an errorless season with three catches in right field.  In the sixth, Reagan singled (one of three hits on the day), and a mis-play by Taylor’s right fielder put Raymer at third with one out.  Reagan came home on a wild pitch to give Wyoming their first run.  Down 3-1, the Cowboys made their move in the top of the seventh scoring Reily Boss on an error, then Jacquemin scored the tying run on a ground out by Michaela, and a double by Raymer scored the two seniors: Juergens and Golden.  Jacquemin had a nice day at the plate, getting two hits, and reaching base all three times.  Unfortunately, Taylor scored three times in the bottom of the seventh, with the last run scoring on a very close force play at second that could have sent the game into extra innings (final 6-5).  Next week, the Cowboys host Taylor, have two games against Madeira, and host Finneytown on Friday.  A non-league game at Roger Bacon on Thursday completes the full week.
Thanks to Lisa Golden for the report.
