Hartnell Softball mid-season recap

With seven games remaining on the schedule for the Hartnell Women’s Softball Team, they are now looking towards the postseason. Hartnell currently sits at 11-16 (.407) overall record and with a 3-5 (.375) conference record, featuring big wins against West Valley (W 10-9) and San Jose (W 6-3). Sophomore pitcher, Danielle Caoili, has shown her versatility pitching a 3.45 ERA and earning 30 strikeouts so far this season, but most impressively, ranks third in conference with 4 home runs! Not to mention sophomore Angelina Ruiz, who has been a force to be reckoned with on the base; Ruiz has had 15 stolen bases so far on the season and sitting atop conference. The postseason is not the focus for the Lady Panthers, since there are still 7 games remaining in the season. The Softball Team is looking to exceed the .500 record. However, their schedule speaks for itself, as they have played in multiple showcases and tournaments against high ranked teams. Hartnell has had 128 runs, a .292 batting average, and a 393% slugging percentage so far. They look to succeed as they play three of their final seven games home against league teams. Next home game for the Hartnell Women’s Softball Team will be against Cabrillo on April 12, 2018. Go Panthers!!
