The Lady Tiger’s Softball team took on the Plainfield South Cougars in a head-to-head battle for their first conference game of the season on Tuesday, April 5,

The Tigers jumped on the score board early with a 3-0 lead the first inning after being able to time South’s pitcher Madison Deacon. It wasn’t until Deacon gave up 8 runs that South was forced to bring in a relief pitcher.

Sophomore Lexie Siwek had bases loaded when she hit her first grand slam playing at the Varsity level. The Tigers did a great job offensively for the game.

On the defensive aspect, junior Abbey Kruzel pitched a complete game only allowing six runs throughout the whole game.

“It was hard pitching in the cold weather but you can’t think about it or it will affect how you will play,” said Kruzel. “The team started off great but we lost focus with such a big lead and we were happy we were able to control it before it got out of control.”

With constant hitting rallies throughout the six innings, the Tigers put up 11 runs collectively to take the victory from the Cougars, 11-6.
