The Bison Baseball and Softball teams, like many other spring sports, have been swamped with games lately due to weather delays. Both teams had double headers against the Cambridge-Isanti Jackets yesterday.
The boys took the first game 7-3. The second game, the boys triumphed 8-4. An offensive highlight was Senior Jared Wycoff‘s home run. Freshman Josh Munoz and Junior Mitch Annis were on the hill for the bison.
“Double headers, you just have to play each game separately, ” said Junior Andrew Iverson. “You have to act like the previous game didn’t happen so you can play your best the second. Not get too caught up in the game before.”
The softball team split winning the first game 9-8. In the first game Senior Emily Varner hit a grand slam that gave the bison a lead and secured the win. Senior Bailey Braatz started both games and Junior Madison DesMaris came in as relief in the first game. The second game, the bison weren’t as fortunate falling 8-10 due to a few errors by the Bison defense.
“We didn’t play our best, but we didn’t let our mistakes control us,” said Sophomore Amber Styve. “We hit well, and if we tighten up our defense, we’ll be great. Defense wins ball games.”
Both teams play Big Lake this Thursday at home. Friday, the boys head to Waconia and the girls host Chanhassen. Good luck to both teams the rest of the week.
