The Central Warriors softball team had another tough week, losing the final four games of the regular season to end with an overall record of 3-13. 

It all started with a doubleheader on July 6, against the conference-leading Turkey Valley Trojans, who won game one 12-2. 

Warrior pitcher Chelsia Larson continued her valiant effort as the team’s main pitcher, but could not overcome the onslaught of the Trojan bats.

Freshman Delaney Scherf performed well offensively for Central, amassing two hits, including a home run, and two RBIs. 

The second game of the doubleheader was all Trojans from start to finish, as they won 14-0. Turkey Valley totaled 13 hits, while, conversely, the Warriors had one, provided by junior Madison Sylvester. 

The final two games were against North Fayette Valley. While the Warriors were able to produce more offense against the 5-10 TigerHawks, the end result was the same, as they lost both games. 

Larson once again took the mound in game one. The Warriors, led by Grace Kuehl with two hits, one run and one RBI, were pesky fighters, but could not overcome a rising deficit, eventually losing 15-5. 

Game two looked more promising, as the Warriors got off to a 2-1 lead. However, it was undone by a combination of errors, walks, hit batters and TigerHawk senior Taylor Ney. Even as the Warriors had the game tied 6-6 heading into the seventh inning, a three-run inning by the TigerHawks erased hope of ending the regular season with a win. 

Central junior Abby Cummer shined the brightest offensively, totaling three hits and one RBI in the game. 

The Warriors started their playoff journey Monday, July 13, against the 1-11 Starmont Stars.
