Carlmont’s JV softball team has been dominating their opponents all season. And even though their offense started off slow against the Panthers on April 11th, the Scots prevailed 7-2 in the final game of the season. Carlmont was eager to end their season on a high note, and the stakes were high entering the game.

The Scots defense started the game with an impressive first inning. Starting on the mound for Carlmont, was freshman Taylor Meeks. She pitched well causing three ground ball which the defense handled with ease. One ground ball was stopped by Bianca Vitale, a junior, who dove and threw the runner out from the ground.

Carlmont’s offense initially started out fairly strong. They scored two in the first inning with a single from junior Cierra Stratton and RBI from Vitale to bring in the first run.

The next inning Carlmont pulled a double to end the inning and went into the dugout hoping to widen their lead. However, a fielder’s choice and a pair of ground outs lead to a scoreless second inning for the Scots.

Carlmont’s offense lacked fervor in the middle of the game with only a successful steal of home to show for their efforts.

“We started out a little rough this game, but I think we pulled through,” said sophomore Grace Heck.

Burlingame looked like they were catching up with a couple of runs scored on a few dropped fly balls by the Scots. But for the most part, the Scots were able to contain the Panther’s offense.

“There were a few errors at the beginning that were kind of embarrassing. But we always finish strong at the end,” said Heck.

In the sixth inning, the Scots began to pull away from the Panthers ending the inning, winning 7-2. Samantha Chu, a freshman, closed the game for the Scots leading them to a season-ending victory.

“I’m going to miss hanging out with my friends during games,” said sophomore Grace Ledwith.

This game especially taught me that you have to be focused straight from the beginning,”

“Each game you learn a little more and each game you grow a little more as a player, and as a person. And this game especially taught me that you have to be focused straight from the beginning and I think that will help us next year,” said Heck

The players weren’t the only ones who learned something from this season and today’s game.

“[The girls taught me] patience. They also taught me that jumping to conclusions is a very bad decision,” said head coach, Wes Chong.

Ultimately the Scots ended their fantastic season with a strong win, leaving the fans and the player excited for next year.
