- We hit twice as many home runs in the last 4 games than we did in the first 8 games.The 15 minute lighting delay at etna field.
- Girls…..Do I really have to tell you not to eat the mushrooms growing in the outfield?
- Left field foul balls were down 30% from last season.
- Hannahs perfectly placed home run in Jaidyns mom’s chair against montour. Terra why didn’t you catch it? It was hit right to you.
- I can’t believe the roofers finished before we did.
Only 4 of the games this season went a full 7 or more innings and when they did it was exciting:
Bethel Park Orange, game 2. Bottom of the 7th, down by 3. Kat walks, Selena singles, Alex singles, Meg singles and clears the bases, tying the game, Katarina hits a walk off double, Meg scores for the win. Game over Shaler wins 9-8.
Montour, game 1. Bottom of 6th, down by 7. The girls batted through the order, Jaidyn drove in Tia for the tying run on her 2nd at bat in the inning, Kat doubled and scored Tessa and Jaidyn to go up by 2. Top of the 7th the defense went 1,2,3 for the win 19-17 ( Jaidyn batted twice and was the 1st and last runs to score in the 6th, nice job Jaidyn)
North Allegheny, game 1: This game had everything. The most back and forth game of the season, we were down by 5, then up by 2, and then back down and back up, went into extra innings and we got up by 4 then gave up 2 for a very wild finish. Shaler won 23-21. This was our only game where we gave up 20+ runs, N.A. only had 3 outfielders, Meg hit the top of the 16 foot fence on a field that is 218 feet, and Tessa showed up in a tow truck.
North Hills, game 2: Last game of the season and the girls played hard to keep the perfect record. Bottom of the 7th, up by 6 and N.H. had top of the order coming up. The girls gave up 3 and then shut it down on the 5,6,7 hitters with Tessa closing the season on a strikeout.
The weather had a big effect on us this season! A big thank you to all the parents for getting the girls to all the reschedules and the late nights:
- We had 4 home weekends on the schedule but only played 1 Saturday at hilltop, the rest were at Etna, North hills and Oakdale.
- We had a 23 day break due to a bye week and rainouts
- We played 6 night games on weekdays.
- All 6 night games were in a row
- We played 6 games in 11 days to end the season.
