On Saturday, Sept. 28, the Hawks played Bellevue East, Omaha Central, and Millard South away in Omaha. They won the first two games 11-4 and 12-1, then lost against Millard South 4-3 in a time limit.

“I feel like we did good this weekend, our last game we lost but our first game we started really strong, we had some really good hitting and we just need to keep up our energy through all three games,” sophomore Taylor Fritz said.  

Senior Abby Squier agreed with Fritz’s statement. Squier felt that the team had a good performance, and that the team was prepared for the game.

“I think we did really well in the morning, we all came out and were ready to play. Honestly I think we played well even in the Millard South game we just fell a little bit short,” Squier said. 

Squier was happy with the team’s performance and attitude. She felt they could be successful as long as they focused on one game at a time. 

“I think we just have to have a chip on our shoulder and be ready to play them at state. Take it one game and a time and not get too anxious about about state and districts,” Squier said.

Millard South is one of the top contenders for the state tournament. Squier is positive about playing them again later in the season. 

“I think Millard South is definitely a good team, they’ll probably make it to state and be one of the teams we might play so I’m excited to play them again,” Squier said. 

The Hawks play again on Tuesday, Oct. 1 away vs Fremont. They play a doubleheader at 2:30.
