PREP SOFTBALL: Redskin rally

Young Goshen team making progress at 2012 midpoint

GOSHEN — The Goshen Redskins have progressed to the point where they are finding ways to win some softball games.

Sophomore Taylor Caouette’s one-out RBI single in the bottom of the seventh inning Friday lifted GHS to an improbable 10-9 Northern Lakes Conference triumph over Wawasee at Shanklin Park.

The Lady Redskins led this game 5-1 and then fell behind 9-5 before rallying for five runs in their last two at-bats.

“We are finally getting our bats working throughout the game,” said first-year Goshen coach Cassi McCormack. “A couple weeks ago we were struggling early in games.”

The top four in the Redskin batting order was very productive, going a combined 9-for-19 at the plate with seven runs batted in.

Senior Mckenzie Byler slapped three hits and scored four runs including the winner, junior Kaylee Shepherd had a key seventh-inning hit, Caouette had three hits and three RBI, junior Lacee Mulcahey two hits and four RBI.

Goshen has three more NLC games next week, hosting NorthWood on Monday, visiting unbeaten Northridge on Wednesday and hosting Warsaw on Friday.

“Our top four hitters were productive and that’s what we need,” said McCormack. “It’s encouraging to see their improvement at the plate and our defense actually hasn’t been that bad all season.”

It was a frustrating conclusion for Wawasee which had seven errors to aid the Redskin cause.

The Warriors got three hits from freshman Alli Ousley, two RBI each from Ousley, senior Amber Yoder and freshman Priscilla Weikart.

Byler, who pitched a no-hitter earlier in the week against Plymouth, started in the circle for Goshen. She threw numerous pitches before being relieved in the sixth by Caouette who successfully limited the damage.

Junior Morgan VanOver pitched the seventh and earned credit for the victory after retiring the Warriors in order, capped by snaring a line drive back to the circle.

With back-to-back doubles in the fourth, Caouette drove in one run and Mulcahey two to give Goshen its 5-1 lead.

Yoder had a two-run double, Weikart a sacrifice fly and Ousley a run-scoring double to give Wawasee a 6-5 lead in the fifth.

The Warriors plated three more in the sixth with an RBI single by junior Victoria Warren the only hit.

Caouette and Mulcahey had successive RBI singles in the sixth as Goshen tied the game with four runs, assisted by three Wawasee miscues.

After one out in the bottom of the seventh, Byler reached on an error. Shepherd singled, advancing Byler to second and Caouette followed with her game-winning single up the middle.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
