Varsity Home vs Lake Orion

 

The Dragons actually played better than the scores suggests tonight at Swartz Creek.  There were a lot of positives and improvements with coaches trying players in different positions etc.  The Dragons also rested their senior captain pitcher Madisen Henry in the non-conference games to give freshmen Jessica Verran and Sydney Scott and sophomore Natalie Oldrham time on the mound.  The team travels to Lake Orion Saturday to play Oxford, Waterford Mott and Goodrich in their first tournament of the season.

The Dragons only managed 4 walks in the games, but with only 1 strike out put the ball in play most every atbat....unfortunately right at the defenders.  Sydney Scott started the game on the mound and pitched 2 innings.  Natalie Oldrham finished the game for the

Dragons.
