Senior Hailey MacKay hit a grand slam in the win against East View last Friday night. The varsity softball team won 9-3 in their rematch against the Lady Patriots.

“I was so happy that I could step up big against East View because that was a huge game for us in terms of making playoffs and I feel like I’m back on track at the plate now,” MacKay said.

After the first two innings, the game was tied 2-2 after MacKay registered two RBIs. Then, senior Gabby Walton hit a double, which also got her an RBI. Junior Katie Hickam then hit a single which led to Walton scoring, bringing the score up 4-2. Later in the game, sophomore Emily Walton got to third base after freshman Haley Henderson hit a single. After junior Abbey Orlich walked, G. Walton helped her sister score a run by hitting a single getting the RBI. All of this led up to MacKay’s grand slam which jumped the score to 9-3. 

I was so happy that I could step up big against East View because that was a huge game for us in terms of making playoffs.”

— Hailey MacKay

“We saw the ball very well and strung together base hits (with the exception of Hailey who dropped bombs all night long),” G. Walton said. “I know for me, I just had to envision being successful and hit good pitches.”

Next the Lady Lions travel to Vista Ridge tonight at 7, as long as the rain holds up.
