Eaton Softball showed up ready to compete against rivals Strasburg Indians and lost with a score of 15-10. “There is always some form of intimidation when we play on Strasburg’s home territory,” said Coach Chad Shaw.

 In the past, the team has had heavy competition with Strasburg, one of their hardest competitors in the state and after losing to the Indians with a score of 3-0 in the state championship game just last yeat the Reds were determined to stop Strasburgs run for their third consecutive state championshipsulting in Strasburg winning their second consecutive state championship. “As a team, we are equally as good as these other schools. We just have random hiccups throughout the game,” said Shaw.

With a record of 12-3 and time for state running short the team continues to practice to bring home a state championship. “So far in the season we started strong we’ve just hit a bump in the road that were working to conquer. Normally whenever we get a little behind they begin to doubt themselves,” said Shaw. “At practice we’ve been working on having more focus on defense to prevent defensive errors.” Looking into the season The Reds will later play the Indians and the Bulldogs, another rival for the second time this season. “The confidence we have will determine the results of any second game,  and i’m looking forward to playing these teams like University and Strasburg again,” said Shaw
