WOOT WOOT!! NHS RAILERS!!!
So, last night we played Salina Central. And we did great! My girls made me proud!! It was a double header of course.
The first game we came out and had 7 runs in the top of the 1st inning! AMAZING!! Then we kept up that momentum the rest of the night. Cassaday did a great job pitching the first game. Many mad great hits, great steals, great slides! I was even surprised by Cassaday who somewhere along the line learned how to do a GREAT pop up slide!! (I admit, I was laughing in awh over that one!!) We had some amazing "under the tag" slides into homeplate!! We won that game 13-6
The second game, we had "Critter" come and join us (she played Varsity the first game). *aka Staci - the death girl from SADD posting* She started the game with stealing second right off the WALK!! Gotta love how Critter absorbs with those fast short legs!! Then she was hit by a straight liner right after that, so she was out. Her next up to bat, well, she made up for the loss. SHE HIT A IN THE PARK HOME RUN!!! She was so excited! Who am i kidding!? I was so excited! It was great!! Then Alexus hit a triple, and cassaday a double, and Braidyn a double!! WOW! What a night! We ended up run ruling that game 15-0. That makes my JV record 3-1!!
The Varsity did great too, adding 2 wins to their records. They are now 2-2!!
I was even given a great compliment from one of our umpires. He came to me and said "I like your style Coach" So, I asked him what he meant by that and he said "I like your intensity! You go after it!" So, I was glowing after that comment. :)
Running: Well, it was t-storming this morning. And the "coach" side of me said. "You need more sleep, you are going to be dragging all day as it is." So I listened to her, hit the alarm, and kept sleeping. Plan for tomorrow is that we have 8am practice. SO-- "Coach" will be taking her morning run TO practice.
