After having a successful regular, the varsity softball team will be heading to regionals and hopefully state to end the season. With only six loses, which were mostly at the beginning of the season, and 18 wins so far, softball coach Ty Lucas is confident with his team entering the playoffs.
“So far the season has gone really well. They’ve been right on bar with what our expectations have been. They’ve put themselves in a good position,” said Lucas.
Lowry finished the regular season in second place behind Fernley which gives them a first round bye in the playoffs. The six-team tournament begins on Thursday and the top two teams will advance to state.
“We expect to be one of those top two teams,” said Lucas.
Sophomore Kelcey Cooper believes that they have been doing well this season.
“We have worked really hard for 2nd place in the league. I think we have met most of our expectations this year. One, being beating Fallon in the series,” said Cooper. “If we all do our jobs, I think we will finish on top at regionals.”
Junior Macy Katzenmeyer agrees that they will do well at regionals.
“We held ourselves at high expectations this season, to get better and we did. I think as long as we come into regionals with great mental preparedness, we will do well,” said Katzenmeyer. “When we play loose and confident, is when we win games.”
Senior Kyllie Sappington is coming to the end of her last Lowry softball season. She is confident with her team going to state.
“Our main goal was to be one of the top two teams for regionals and of course go to state so I’d say we have met our expectations so far,” said Sappington. “ I think we will do well at regionals as long as we hit we will have a very good chance in going to state.”
