The Red’s shutout win against the Brush Beetdiggers took them to 10-3 on the season. The blowout game, with a final score of 13-0 kept the win streak for the Reds alive making it five victories total. 

Both the offensive and defense were on point for the Reds. They found a way to put up 13 runs while holding the Beetdiggers to none. Kiauna Smith(25) said, “ The goal for the team is really just to play our best, and if that means we get the chance to be back to back state champs, we’ll go and take it.” 

Smith led the way for the Reds batting, going three for five on the day. A home run away from completing the cycle she tallied a single, double, and a triple driving in two runs. When playing, she goes out and does what she does best. She knows that her teammates have her back at all costs. She said, “As a freshman, there’s obviously is a bit of pressure that I feel, but my teammates have told me that I deserve to be where I am, so I just always go out and give my best because I know my team has my back no matter what.”

Smith wasn’t the only one who stepped up at the plate on Tuesday, Olivia Comer(22) who went two for four with a single and a double feels like her role had changed as a senior. She said, “I have to be more of a leader now that I’m a senior, especially having to fill the shoes of the amazing seniors that were on the team last year.” 

Sadie Ross(24) was on the bump and completed the game with a shutout. She pitched six innings giving up only two hits and racking up nine strikeouts. In her first game back from injury, she gave up 0 runs and her record started out at 1-0. 

The Reds will take on the Valley Vikings this Thursday, September 16 back at home. Smith said, “When we get to the field we all get into that winning mindset, and we always make sure we are loud and pumping each other up, so we can come out and start the game strong.”  The Vikings, after coming off a loss from Sterling are 5-7 on the year entering Thursday’s game.
