Girls are off to a slower start, but have played a very legit schedule.

A great walk off win yesterday with Weisgram (who has battled an injury since breaking out as a freshman) hit a game winner opposite field line drive. They beat Seattle who was 8-0 against Big Sky teams at that point. They actually battled Seattle pretty well in their other games too, just made some errors and mistakes and couldn’t produce runs.

I saw a stat where Achenbach had twice as many strikeouts as the next closest pitcher to her in the big sky this season....she was already at 80 and the next closest was at like 40 and I think she added on another 20 or so in the last couple games. Remarkable!

They’ve got two more games today against Utah Valley and one tomorrow. Go Griz!

Hooked, glad to see you still got enthusiasm. It’s been a ruff year for the girls, especially after how last year was going. The bats have been there with several girls floating at or above .300 all year and a lot of girls showing some power. Loved the 1st inning grand slam by Kendall Curtis yesterday and was really glad they were able to hold on for the win. Today was another ruff day for the girls but hopefully Achenbach can come out tomorrow and help secure a win. Achenbachs K numbers were almost as remarkable last year but we also had a resurgent Michaela Hood last year and we are really missing a 2nd dominant pitcher this year. Our inexperienced 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pitchers are really struggling to keep opposing offenses at bay and our decently good offense can’t keep up. What really makes me nervous is that next year Achenbach will most likely be gone, barring she doesn’t opt in for her bonus senior season. We do have a very good pitching commit coming in next year and hopefully Brock can develop into the dominant pitcher she is expected to be. If not, then I really hope we score a LOT of runs. As always, Go Griz!
