GLHS Softball

     After a successful 2011 season, the GLHS softball team is working towards an even better season this year. 

     Last year, the softball team ended their season as State Runner-Ups after months of high achievement and determination that lead them to the championship game against Canton Vally Hoover, where they lost 4-2. The GLHS Varsity softball team also ranked 3rd in the OCC. 

     "We had really good chemistry last year. Even though we lost 7 straight games we knew that we had to come back and win it and that is exactly what we did to get to states," senior Sarah Seidel said.  

     After a season of records and high rankings, the team has even higher goals for this year. 

     "Our main goals are to win the OCC and to also win 20 of our games," sophomore Jessica Sparks said. 

     So far, Varsity's record stands at 12-7. Even with some minor setbacks, the team is not going to give up. It is still early in the season with multiple opportunities for accomplishment. 

     "There is some room for improvement, but it is still early in the season," junior center fielder Olivia Schumacher said. 

     The JV Gold team is showing their passion for the game by trying their best to get better and better each game.

     "Our team is doing pretty well this year. I think that we have the ability to do even better. We have a solid team that works together with the drive to win," Sparks said.

     The softball team has many games left in the season to show their ability and make it back to the top. 

     "It is so nice to have peers at the games! Last year we did not have many people come to our games, but since we did so well they are coming out more to support us this year," Seidel said.
