Softball falls to Los Altos
Varsity softball lost to Los Altos 0-8 in a home game Tuesday, April 18.
â€śGoing into the game, I knew it was going to be a tough one against Los Altos, knowing their pitcher and how committed she is. It was kind of intimidating,â€ť first baseman and pitcher sophomore Cheyenne Tucker said.
Los Altos dominated the bases and pitching throughout the seven innings of the game, having 27 at bats compared to Walnutâ€™s 15.
â€ś[During games] we focus on trying to stay in the game mentally and keep our heads in as much as possible, and we also focus on staying positive towards one another,â€ť first baseman sophomore Alyssa Joyner said. â€śWe’ve definitely seen more improvement with our plays on the field after practicing and we’ve been communicating more, so that improved our gameplay.â€ť
Varsity practiced hitting drills on Wednesday to make up for its lack of batting during the game. The team aims to be more aggressive by taking and securing more bases.
â€śWe definitely could’ve been more aggressive at the bases, and I think with the practice it really helped our batting,â€ť Joyner said. â€śI think that if we focus more on the scenario plays that we missed during that game, I believe that we can change the game for the better.â€ť
