The Varsity Softball team finished its regular season with a 7-9 record. The Eagles recorded victories over West Valley, Clymer, Sherman and Brocton. These league wins placed the team in 4th place in league and a No. 5 seed in playoffs where we faced Ripley.
The ladies learned the joy of winning and how to handle close losses to Franklinville, North Collins and Ripley.
The Lady Eagles, after returning from a field trip to the WWII Museum in Eldred, started a “Support the Troops” campaign. Elizabeth Wendel and Ashley Charlesworth organized the event, which included camo shirts for all spring sports at all levels. Thank you, Ladies!
The team was made up of three Seniors: Alyssa Costello, Grace Hall and Ashley Wilson; 10 Juniors: Sam Uhrinek, Rebecca Golley, Kayla Dunkleman, Julia Schwartz, Emily Uhrinek, Elizabeth Wendel, Courtney Scanlan, Courtney Antholzner, Ashley Charlesworth, and Amy Borowiak; and one freshmen: Morgan Zlockie. Alexis Woodin, a sophomore, and Evie Cortez, a 7th grader, joined the team for playoffs.
The Lady Eagles made ECS proud in every game. They worked together and supported each other in all areas of the game. Thank you, Ladies!
