Today BCW girl's softball played against Hudsonville High School and after 12 innings and 4 hours of being tied at 2-2 we lost on base hit with bases loaded, 3-2. Hudsonville's all star pitcher was about 6'1'', is a sophomore and already has a full ride to U of M for softball. Her massive size didn't intimidate Western's smallest player. Karrie Jaynes (5'0'') lead the offense with 4 hits!

The opposing coach came and shook Karrie's hand and said he's never seen someone get 4 hits off of that pitcher. Also helping with the offense was Erica Weiler (whose hit tied the game in the 5th inning) and Erin Moeggenberg getting a hit. The defense played spectacular the whole game allowing no unearned runs. Hudsonville is from the Grand Rapids area and it rated 1st in the state. BCW got rated 9th this year. But making it to the quarter-finals today means we were one of 8 teams left in the whole state. Hudsonville admitted they planned on coming and kick our butts with a mercy in just 3 innings, but we gave them a run for their money. Maddison Sebald pitched all 12 innings and did amazing.
