HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL: Redskins fall at home to Blazers

Goshen struggles to produce runs in nonconference loss to Elkhart Central

GOSHEN — A close game early turned ugly later on Wednesday for Goshen High School’s softball Lady Redskins.

Elkhart Central’s Blue Blazers never trailed and broke it open with a six-run fifth inning for a 10-1 non-conference victory at Shanklin Park.

The learning continues for a very inexperienced Lady Redskin team under first-year head coach Cassie McCormack who was involved in a lengthy post-game meeting with her club.

Goshen managed just four hits in the game off Central senior right hander Emillea Rief who struck out six and walked two.

Junior Kaylee Shepherd singled for GHS in the first inning and junior Lacee Mulcahey reached on an error, but both were stranded.

Senior McKenzie Byler walked in the third and scored on a two-out double to left field by sophomore Taylor Caouette.

Byler tripled with two out in the fifth and Caouette again doubled to lead off the sixth, but the Redskins were unable to score on either occasion.

Byler did the pitching for Goshen, striking out three and walking four.

The Redskins had four errors behind her.

Central got an RBI single from sophomore Kate Cobb in the third inning and an RBI single by senior Kate Fann in the fifth.

In the big sixth inning, Goshen was guilty of three miscues.

Cobb ripped a run-scoring double, Fann and senior Mariah VanderHoek RBI singles.

The Redskins did have some good plays in the field, particulary from Caouette at shortstop and freshman Brooke Miller at second base.

Goshen plays in the Adams Invitational at LaSalle Field in South Bend on Saturday and opens Northern Lakes Conference play Monday at home against Northridge. Goshen will also host East Noble on Tuesday and  resume NLC play at Elkhart Memorial on Wednesday.

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.
