Deer Isle—The girls softball team lost to George Stevens 18-6 on May 24. We did not play well defensively and allowed too many easy base runners. We did well offensively but it wasn’t enough. Brittany Gray and Brienna Limeburner split the pitching duties. Lily Gray and Katie Hutchinson each had 2 singles, Brittany Gray had a double, and Abby Stinson, Limeburner, Amy Friedell, and Haley Hardy each had a single.
The girls played a much better game on May 27 to beat Jonesport 14-5. Lily Gray pitched a 2-hitter with 3 strikeouts. We played strong defense to back her up which allowed us to keep a comfortable lead. Everybody was able to play. Friedell, Kristin Thompson, Brittany Gray, and Hutchinson each had 2 singles, and Limeburner, and Lily Gray each had a single.
The girls are 4-9 and won’t make the playoffs. That being said, this has been a growing year with a good core of players cutting their teeth to varsity play.
