WSN set to play Montgomery Catholic Friday

Look out, here comes your WSN blue Eagles softball team on a mission, as they are your area champs for the second year in a row.

These girls are fighting and giving there all on the field as they prepare for regionals. The road has not been easy for the Eagles starting off the regular season, but they have managed to turn things around and become area champs.

Staring off the regular season the Eagles was 3-7 for their first ten games, now going they are 6-21 going into the playoffs.

In the area tournament on Monday the Eagles defeated Escambia County High School. In the first game the Eagles went to work as they lead Escambia to a 17-2 victory.

In game two the matchup resulted in a forfeit for Escambia County, leaving the Eagles as the winners of that game as well.

Jailyn Bondurant got the win with four innings of hard work. Madison White, Makayla Crook, Natalie Wyatt, Kendall Carpenter, Ashli Wyatt and Jena Wyatt all recorded at least one hit and Asia Davis got a walk off hit in the fourth to score two runs in the 17-2 victory.

Head coach Emily Vickrey said, “It’s been a rough year but we have made some improvements, and we are working on getting better every day to prepare for regional play.”

We are excited to be area champs for the second year in a row and looking forward to good things in the future.

The Eagles will travel on the road for the first round of the regional playoffs to Gulf Shores. The Eagles will take on Montgomery Catholic at 3 p.m. If they are successful and win that game they will play again at 6 p.m. for round two.
