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.

About the Contributor
Hannah Frey, Leaflet Editor in Chief
My name is Hannah Frey and this is my fourth year being a part of the Leaf staff. I joined the Leaf because I wanted to expand my involvement in the SHS community and I wanted to learn more about graphic design. I am passionate about social equality and the social injustices that occur in our affluent society. Being in this class has helped me to see that I want to work for a nonprofit organization and help solve these problems. I am currently the editor and chief of the Leaflet, which is our online, design-based magazine. Every issue, I pick a new topic to be covered. Using design to cover these issues attracts another audience for the Leaf and makes it entertaining to have an in-depth look about a topic. Journalism has helped shape the person I am today, and it will help me excel in my desired field of work.
