Softball Remains Winless

Last night, August 23, Northview Titan Softball (0-3, 0-3 Region 6-AAAAAA) fell to the Alpharetta Raiders (6-4, 3-1 Region 6-AAAAAA) by a score of 11-1. From the beginning, Alpharetta was on the offensive, scoring four runs in the first inning. The Raiders did not slow down, securing their win with a six-run third. The Titans only scored once at the top of the fifth. After this half-inning, Northview was run-ruled and the game was over. Avery Camera, a freshman for the Raiders, lead her team with two runs, setting the pace for the game in which primarily underclassmen scored. The Raider freshmen and sophomores accounted for seven runs while the juniors and seniors gathered just four.

“We have a lot to work on. With our field being practically unusable for the past few weeks, we have not been able to get out on the field as much as we would like to. We have a lot to work on both offensively and defensively, but I think we can do it,” senior shortstop Sophia Hamill said.

The Titans will travel to Johns Creek High School on Thursday, August 24, searching for their first win of the season. Northview will also make up their game against Duluth that was postponed due to a broken water pipe leading to the field on August 30.
