Last week, Girls’ softball split their two games to finish the regular season with a 4-9 record. Because of the pandemic, the team was restricted to a shortened schedule going from 25 games to just 13.

“Having to deal with the pandemic has been a little challenging this year and this season has definitely been different from past seasons,” said junior Liz Hertling. 

On Monday, Grandview beat Cherry Creek 8-1 in a blowout. The offense was on fire, hitting on 31 of their 34 plate appearances. 

“It felt really good to get another win after losing so many games,” said senior Lyla Michels.

Sophomore Miranda Ferrier agreed.

 “It was great to win over Creek because the first we played them we lost so the fact we won was very good for our team,” said Ferrier. 

Moving on to Wednesday’s game, the Wolves lost a hard fight to Cherokee Trail. They closed 16-12. Grandview had a 11-7 lead heading into the 5th inning, until CT made a roaring comeback, outsourcing the Wolves 9 to 1 in the last three innings. 

“The CT game was very intense and a very tough game,” said Michels. “It was sad to lose especially on Senior Day, we really wanted that win.”

Your Grandview Wolves will face Arapahoe in the Conference Tournament on Tuesday 9/29. They will play away at Arapahoe high school.

“Our team is ready heading into the tournament,” said senior Jenny Allen. “We know exactly what we need to do to win and I feel that we could cause some upsets.”

Go support the Wolves this Tuesday at Arapahoe High School at 4:15 pm.
