On May 11, the lady Indian softball team traveled to Salina to participate in a triangular with Salina South and Andover Central. The lady Indians dropped both games while they were there.

The first game of the triangular was against Salina South, and the Indians lost 14-4 to the Cougars. Junior Brenna Schwien would drive in two of the four runs, with one other run coming from sophomore Morgen Berry and the other coming from junior Sydney Fagan.

The Indians also dropped their second game against Andover Central, with the score being 7-2. Sophomore Madyson Sennett drove in a run, and Berry did as well.

Freshman Aubree Thomas pitched both games for the Indians and took both losses.

The Indians then traveled to Garden City on May 13 for a single game for one of their last league games of the season. They went on to lose 10-8, with a late-game momentum change not being enough for the Indians to take the lead.

Schwien had three of the Indian’s 11 hits, and sophomores Ashlyn Zimmer and Raegan Winter both had two. Winter and sophomore Elle Dreiling both drove in two runs.

Thomas pitched the full game for the Indians and only allowed one earned run for the game.

The Indians are now 12-8 on the season, and they will travel to Goddard Eisenhower on May 18 to play Newton in the first round of the regional tournament.
