Bearcats Season Comes To An EndPosted: Updated:
Bearcats softball season concluded tonight in a heartbreaking loss to the University of Maine.
Freshman pitcher Chelsea Howard competed great at the mound allowing just six hits. Unfortunately Howard gave up a two-run homer to Alyssa Derrick to let The Black Bears get the go ahead run for the game winner.
The Black Bear defeated the Bearcats 4-3.
Head Coach Michelle Johnston was understandably emotional after the loss, taking blame for the last play of the game. "I told them that games on me. We were basically pitching around Alyssa Derrick and then got greedy, we got ahead of her and thought we could go after her... and obviously you saw the result... Chelsea pitched a really good game, it was just one pitch... one pitch." Said Johnston.
Johnston also went on to talk about the seniors that will now be leaving this team behind. When asked what will she miss most about this senior class she stated, "When they get out on the field they are all out on the field... they truly love just going out and playing all out. I'll miss that from them."
