The SHS softball team played their first playoff game against Amelia; they won six to five.

Even though it was a victory for the team they know if they want to beat Harrison they will have to get going offensively quicker.

“I am really happy that we won but I wish we would have started hitting a little sooner so that game would have not been so tight,” said Hannah Young, 9.

The seniors on the team are very excited to play Harrison because of the history behind the two teams.

“We played Harrison when we were sophomores and they beat us by one after a long rain delay. Before that delay we were winning. Everyone just really feels like we should have beat them and want another chance at them,” said Hannah Melvin, 12.

The girls will play Harrison on May 14, away. If they loose this game they will be out of the tournament, so it is very important for them to win.
