Tonight it was all on the line for the Lady Indians Survive and Advance. Tonight was game 1 of the sectional for Mississinewa at Norwell High School, The Lady Indians played the Heritage Lady Patriots. Erika Foy was on the mound tonight. The Lady Indians got on the board in the 3rd Inning on a Shelby Goble Solo Home Run over the Leftfield fence, giving the Lady Indians a 1-0 lead. In the 6th Inning the Patriots would rally for 2 runs and take a 2-1 lead, in the bottom half of the Inning the Lady Indians would tie the game up at 2. A Pitching duel took the game into the 12th Inning where a bases loaded fly ball with 1 out to Indian Centerfielder was caught, the runner from 3rd would tag Goble threw home and the Runner would be caught in a pickle where she would be tagged out by Lady Indian Erika Foy. The Lady Indians had a runner at 3rd with 2 outs in the bottom half of the Inning and would not capitalize. In the top of the 13th A 1 out flyball to Rightfielder Aubrey Tann would be caught the runner from 3rd would tag and this she would score giving the Lady Patriots a 3-2 lead. The Lady Indians went 1-2-3 to end the game and their season.
The Bus Ride Home
The bus ride home featured a few tears, a few laughs, and quite a bit of singing. When Senior Aubry Bennett got on the bus a few more tears formed from her teammates, and then the jokes and the stories began. The teamed laughed and joked for a good 20 minutes and then it was time for a little bit of karaoke. Freshmen Riley Mckee and Jenna Berryhill began a trend of singing songs and before to long the whole bus would began to sing. Songs from Wheels on the bus go round and round, to Queens Bohemian Rhapsody I would say The Lady Indians may not have “Crushed” the season or the sectional, but one thing they did “Crush” was the karaoke.
Comments From The Coach
Coach how do you look back on tonight? “In all of my years of coaching tonight may have been the most fun I have had as a coach” Miller said. “They just proved to themselves what they are capable of doing and so hopefully next year the come out play like this all year”. Coach I know it is hard to say goodbye to your Senior Aubry Bennett is their anything you would like to comment about her? “Aubry is a great kid, she set an example and approached each and every game the way every girl should”. “It is hard to say goodbye to her and we will miss her, I would like to wish her the best of luck in the future”.
A Final Goodbye
The hardest part of a season coming to an end is having to say goodbye to your Seniors. But tonight for the Mississinewa Lady Indians they only had to say goodbye to one Senior Aubry Bennett. Bennett has always had a positive impact on the team and no matter what the situation may be Bennett always stayed positive! So to Aubry from your team “Aubry thank you for being a great teammate and we love you and wish you the best of luck in the future.” Junior Erika Foy said “Aubry is a great teammate and she is always positive and had smile on her face”. Aubry Bennett is a class act of how positive you should be on and off the field and she was the best role model you could ask for and so from me “Aubry Jo I am proud of you and so are your coaches and teammates, we are all going to miss you”!
