Orlando, FL- ESPN Wide World of Sports
The LC softball pitching duo Darcie Hawkins and Maria Rangel both had great appearances in the circle for the LYNX! Head Coach Crystal Wurth said, “Pitching has really been effective keeping the hitters off balance. Taylor Gottfriedt is calling a great game behind the plate and right now they are just making things happen on defense- ground ball outs and infield pop ups. At the plate, the girls have been seeing the ball well and moving base runners around with timely hitting. “We are off to a great start the past couple of days, but we play a tough team (SAUK Valley) on Tuesday. They are similar to our style, size and ability so we are looking forward to playing them and see what these girls really can do with pressure.”
