Junior High Softball Finishes A
“Super Season”

The Collinsville Cardinals junior high softball season came to a close last Tuesday as the Lady Cards swept the Lady Zebras in Claremore. With those two wins, 11-0 and 4-1, the Lady Cardinals finished the season with an amazing 37-3 record. The Lady Cards, led by a talented group of 8th graders, amassed 369 runs during the season while allowing only 72. With fantastic pitching and solid defense, 19 of the 37 wins were by shutout.
Last week, the girls played outstanding ball and finished 2nd in the Broken Arrow tournament by beating Claremore, Bixby, Skiatook, Bartlesville and host Broken Arrow before falling to a very good Owasso team in the championship game.
Coach Frame, Sparks, and Cross all agree that this team is not just talented, but were also consistent with three key fundamentals this season. First, they played as a team. Everyone played very selflessly which was a big key to their success this season. Second, they came to practice and games with fantastic attitudes. They all played hard from the first pitch until the last out. And third, these girls were very coachable. Many of these girls have played at a competitive level for many years. They understand the importance of being students of the game and taking advantage of teachable moments every time they stepped on the field. They didn’t take anything for granted.
The high school softball team loses 6 talented seniors after this season. That will open up all kinds of opportunities for these younger players. If they continue to follow these key fundamentals, some of these 8th graders could find themselves in a battle for a position on the varsity squad next year. And equally as exciting is that behind these 8th graders are a group of 7th graders who also possess unlimited potential. It is an exciting time for Collinsville softball. There is a wealth of talent throughout the program that should put the Lady Cardinals in a position to be competitive for the next several years.
