The girls softball team started their season off great with a 7 game winning streak before suffering their first loss to Prior lake. The girls loss didn’t let that discourage them they got back on their feet going 16-3 during the regular season. The girls then started their trek to state starting with Owatonna. They beat them 3-0 with no problem and went on to face their next opponent Rochester Mayo. The tigers started down 3-1 after 3 but began a come back in the fifth. The tigers tied it up and forced extra innings Caitie Dully stole home in the bottom of the 9th to win 4-3. The tigers then faced New Prague in back to back games. This was a soft spot for some of the girls because they lost to them last year to send New Prague to state. They didn’t let that scare them, again they went into extra innings tied 2-2 but won 3-2 in the 8th with a good team at bat. They went on to face them again in the finals the tigers were up 7-4 going into bottom of the seventh but New Prague managed to rally off some hits and tie it up to go into extra. Again the tigers battled hard and won 8-7 to go to state in the ninth. I asked Senior Captain Emily Berdan about the feeling of going to state, ” It was a really close game but everyone fought to the very end and we came out on top. Ending my career at the state tournament is something I’ll never forget.” Congrats girls good luck at state.
