Warrior softball on fire


The Washington Warriors went undefeated at the Murray County Bash in Davis.

They picked up wins over Cache (13-6), Purcell (4-0) and two over Tecumseh (4-0 and 1-0).

They then came back on Monday and beat Jones 18-0 in a District game.

“We did what we needed to do,” said Warrior Head Coach Jace Brewer. “We’ll get into our District slate these next 10 days and get on the backside of that part of the schedule.”

Washington outscored their opponents 40-6 over the most recent stretch.

Mikinzy Bost (.654), Kaydence Andrews (.526) and Emma Curry (.676) are all hitting at massive clip.

Tinley Lucas (.457) is also hitting at a high level.

The Warrior defense is also playing at a high level, though Brewer sees room for improvement.

“We’ve been pretty solid on defense for the season but haven’t played real well as of late,” he said.

Warrior sophomore Maggie Place has been fantastic in the circle.

She sports a .612 ERA and is a perfect 6-0 on the season. She has 43 strikeouts this season to only 12 hits.

“Maggie has refined her skills this year,” Brewer said. “She finished great last year and we could see the progress. She had a great summer and picked up right where she left off last year.”

Brewer said his team’s pitching overall has been really good over the past week. His staff includes Katelyn Hicks, Ellie Loveless and Emjay Lucas in addition to Place.

The coach said his team is still working on improving mental toughness but they are getting tougher.

“That’s the thing for every coach in 2020,” he said “How tough are you when you’re presented with challenges and adversities? We’ve gotten better but it needs to continue to get better. We’re taking strides.”

Washington’s senior night has been moved up to today (Thursday) when the Warriors take on Heritage Hall.

“We wanted to move it up to make sure we get it in just in case there are any delays,” he said.

Washington will be back in action Monday against Jones.
