Softball Dominates Districts

It’s officially softball and baseball season and so far, the Lady Wolves softball team have hit the ball out of the park with a first place district standing and an opportunity to go to playoffs.

The Lady Wolves used their great chemistry and confidence to make it one of the best seasons yet. While this year’s team is mostly underclassmen, they’ve proven themselves through hitting the ball strong, keeping an open mind and learning from the three upperclassmen, leading to a 9-2 win against longtime rival, Flower Mound. 

“Our team has great chemistry so we play really well together. Although we have a really young team, our underclassmen have really held their own,” Brooke Hilton, senior (center), said. “They’ve faced pitchers up to four years older than them and have hit off of them, which is something that I’m really proud of,” Hilton said. 

This year’s season has been one of the best yet, with two seniors committing, Brooke Hilton, senior, to Texas A&M University-Commerce and Adayah Wallace, senior (center field), to The University of Texas at Austin, and many motivated and driven underclassmen. 

“I couldn’t have asked for a better group of girls for my senior year,”I’m really excited to go out with a bang,” Hilton said. 

Chemistry is an important part of a quality team. It makes playing and winning more fun and rewarding, helps players feel supported and is what takes a team to the next level. 

“This season we’ve really bonded well together. There’s this great energy and chemistry that we all have,” Hilton said. “We have no drama and we just really enjoy spending time together. If you take us all apart, we’re all decent players but when we’re together we’re a really good team,” Hilton said.

“We’ve really hit the ball well this season as a team. We only have three upperclassmen in our starting lineup, but our lineup is solid. I’m super proud of the way the underclassmen hit the ball. They prove themselves again and again,” Hilton said.
