As the softball season ends, the last home game for the Varsity softball team of Yuma High against the Casa Grande Cougars on Tuesday proved to be eventful.

With a score of (20-0) Yuma High took a crushing defeat, however, some improvements by the end of the season did not go ignored. “Individually, some of the girls with their athletic ability they have improved,” Head Coach Dena Dubois said, “They’re getting more comfortable and more aggressive and that’s what we want.”

With a loss dominated season, Dubois looks on the brighter side for seasons to come and her team’s general improvements that have yet to be made. As far as “team camaraderie” goes, it is a definite thing that is needed for next year.

“Not giving up and not waiting to play, because in all honestly it takes us until the second inning to get fired up when it should start from the beginning,” Dubois said.

The highlight of this specific game, would most definitely be Erica Sanchez’s (#2) line drive up the middle.

“It was one of the best hits of the game,” Assistant Coach Amy Webb said.

Hopes look high for the years to come for the Varsity softball team of Yuma High. And newfound potential is on the rise from the lower levels.

“I’m excited for the lower levels because I have heard lots of great things,” Dubois said.
