Sequoits Hunted Down the Panthers, tied with Thunder

Despite a slow start, the softball team took down the Round Lake Panthers with a dominant 13-1 victory on Tuesday, April 2. The next night, the team went toe-to-toe with the Woodstock North Thuder; the teams rolled into a 2-2 tie in the middle of the tenth.

“We started off slow,” senior Avery Maliki said. “We all worked together as a team to win. It was a fun second game. I think we’ll go far this season.”

The Sequoits have high expectations for this season, wanting to repeat a conference championship title. The team looked to go 3-0 on Wednesday, but the back-and-forth with the Thunder ended in extra innings and a tie. 

“The game was very close the whole time,” sophomore Rilee Schreiner said. “The pitcher we faced had a really nice rise ball that we weren’t expecting to see. Our hitting struggled, but when we started to bunt it caused chaos for the Woodstock North defense.”
