Wiregrass Ranch Bulls softball defeated Cypress Creek 9-2 in a regular season game on Wednesday night bringing their record to 1-1. Coach Vasquez had a plan heading into the game to secure a victory.

“Our defense is gonna have to be superb; pitching has to be there, not expecting strikeouts tonight but hopefully hold them,” Coach Vasquez explained.

The dugout was alive with cheers all night from the team.

The Bulls started the game strong with Sophomore Hailey Vasquez striking out two batters in the first inning. Senior and co-captain of the softball team, Miranda Perez, helped end the 2nd inning quickly with a pop up catch and quick reflexes. The crowd erupted with cheers as the Bulls scored their first run in the 2nd inning, but Cypress Creek was quick to tie the score in the very next inning.

Vasquez was happy with her performance in this game.

“Pitching 7 innings and having 7 strikeouts felt really good, especially when some of them were college commits,” Vasquez said.

The Bulls exploded in the fourth inning with big hits from players like Brianna Baer, co-captain Ashtin Jordan, Loryn Finn, and Brianna Vasquez, scoring 6 runs. The beginning of the fifth inning started with another strikeout from Vasquez, continuing the Bulls dominance. Kimberly Cheung, center field, ended the fifth inning with a pop-up catch.

Sophomore pitcher Hailey Vasquez had a great game with no walks and 7 strikeouts.

Sophomore Madison Montelongo drove home two additional runs in the bottom of the fifth inning with a big hit deep into the outfield, bringing up the score 9-1.

Lexi Gaiefsky, first baseman, helped secure a scoreless inning in the sixth with a clutch pop-up catch while having a runner on 1st and 3rd. The final inning ended with two more strikeouts from Vasquez, bringing her total to 7 strikeouts for the game.

Montelongo explained how this win will affect her game.

“It helps me gain confidence; because I feel we work very well together,” Montelongo explained.

The Bulls hope to improve their record this year, and keep winning.

“This year we’ll compete with Strawberry Crest, Freedom and Wharton and we hope to beat those teams to get into regionals, Coach Vasquez explained.

The next home softball game is February 28th vs. Chapel.
