PREP SOFTBALL: Redskins drop pair on road at Mishawaka

MISHAWAKA — Playing without two starters, the Goshen Redskins got swept by Mishawaka Saturday in a high school girls softball twin bill at Baker Park in Mishawaka.

The hosts took the opener by a 10-0 count and the second game by a 16-7 score.

“Missing any two players on this team would be tough on us,” Goshen coach Cassi McCormack said. “We were flat in the first game before coming back in the second one.”

Senior Lacee Mulcahey and sophomore Yadira Cabrales were the missing Goshen starters.

“The players that filled in for them did a good job,” McCormack said. “It gave us a chance to see what they could do and also to see what we need to work on.

“We have some work to do on our hitting we are taking too many good pitches. We also have a couple of defensive things to work on. We are pretty good on ground balls since we have spent so much of our practice time inside. Our throws need some work. The girls told me the wind was blowing their throws into the runners. After one or two throws like that you should be making an adjustment.”

Mishawaka coach Brian Miller said, “Goshen is a better team than they showed today. The Redskins had a couple of players missing and that makes a difference.

“Our team has learned a lot in the last week. We won our opener against West Noble and then had our lunch handed to us at Chesterton. Yesterday we scored 18 runs and today were in double figures in both games. One of the things we have been talking to the girls about is doing what you can do. We don’t expect all of our girls to hit the ball over the fence. We have a couple of players that can do that and the rest are a bunch of solid contact hitters.”

The first game was close with Mishawaka holding a 2-0 lead until the hosts scored eight runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to end the contest.

Senior Morgan Vanover pitched for the Redskins before being relieved in the fourth by junior Taylor Caouette. Vanover had limited Mishawaka to one base hit by junior Shelby Smith over the first three innings.

“Morgan was throwing well. She kept us in the first game,” McCormack said.”I wanted to give her an opportunity today.”

The Redskins got three hits off Mishawaka starter junior Crystal Markiewicz. Caouette had a double in the first inning, senior Kaylee Shepherd a single in the fourth and junior Jessica Axalco a single in the fifth.

Goshen jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second game. Sophomore Brooke Miller walked and scored and senior Kaylee Shepherd singled and scored on the back end of a double steal with junior Jessica Destefano.

The Redskin lead was short lived as Mishawaka sent 10 batters to the plate in the bottom of the first, scoring seven runs.

Vanover started the second game for Goshen while senior Sky Tirotta was the Mishawka starter.

“Tirotta is a senior that has done all we have asked of her,” Miller said. “She went out and kept us in the second game.”

Leading hitters for the Redskins were Destefano two singles and an RBI, Caouette a single and an RBI and Shepherd two singles. Miller walked and scored three runs.

Sophomore Nichole Linner tripled and drive in three runs for Mishawaka, Smith added a double, single and two RBI and Markiewicz a double and two RBI for Mishawaka.

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.
