On Monday, April 17th, the Warriors suffered their only defeat of the week against a tough Glendale team, losing 6-0. Glendale, the other contender in the MoValley league, remained unbeaten with a conference record of 7-0. 

Makena Moore delivered an impressive performance with 13 strike-outs, while Greysyn Gable hit a double. This loss caused the Warriors to slip to second in the district rankings. However, the Lady Warriors reclaimed the first-place spot by winning the next two games.

On Thursday, the Warriors got an 8-4 win against Mount Union. Although they won by four, there was a 4-4 tie in the seventh inning. Kamryn MacTavish hit a double and had three RBIs. Carsyn Wesesky had two RBIs and a run. 

The Lady Warriors finished the week with an outstanding 26-8 win over Brookville on Friday. Except for the second inning, the Warriors scored six or more runs every inning, including a remarkable eight-run tally in the fifth. Kamryn MacTavish had ten strike-outs on the night. Alaina Royer racked in six RBIs, and Greysen Gable had four. Both Gable and Carsyn Wesesky scored three runs. Makena Moore, Brooke Bainey, and Kamryn MacTavish lead the team with four runs each. 

Hannah Betts, a senior outfielder and former Progress Player of the Week, said, “We started the week off with a tough loss against Glendale, but I think it really pushed us to bring home two wins at the end of the week, which ultimately put us right back where we started the week off at. We have more tough games coming up, so we have more to look forward to in the next couple of weeks.”

The Lady Warriors are back in action on Monday, April 24th, at home against Claysburg-Kimmel. On Tuesday, it’s Senior Night as they face Moshannon Valley at 4:30 p.m., so be sure to show support for the seniors. The Warriors have a current overall record of 10-2 and a conference record of 4-1, having only suffered defeats at the hands of Glendale and Tyrone.
