The BEA softball team continues to improve themselves as the season progresses, but still couldn't manage to snag a win against Jackson County Central on April 16.
"I feel that we are building skills each game, and we just need to keep tightening up our game,"?Coach Abby Bloomquist says.
The team managed a few good hits but were only able to produce one run the whole game.
Audrey McDonald scored the single run for the Bucs this game.
Abby Nimz took the mound against the Huskies, pitching for all seven innings. She allowed 17 hits and four walks.
"We need to make sure that we're not only producing runs, but also that we're not giving teams a second chance to get in the game,"?the BEA?coach says.
The Bucs had a hard time closing innings, which allowed the Huskies to score their 11 runs.
"We had several chances to end innings tonight, but we gave Jackson a few extra outs," Bloomquist says. "We were hoping to get a win tonight, things just didn't quite pan out for us."?
The coach is hoping the girls can continue to improve and come back even stronger after a couple of days off from games.
"We'll get a couple days of practice in and come back strong against Fairmont on Thursday," the coach says.
This week the Bucs will go against the Waseca Bluejays on Thursday April 26 at 5 p.m. in Blue Earth. Friday April 27, the Bucs softball team will play the United South Central Rebels away at 4:30 p.m.
