The Lady Knights have had a rough season with plenty of ups and downs keeping members of the team, as well as new head coach Samantha Livingston, on their toes in order to keep up with more experienced opponents. The team was very busy week last week, with four games played including an LKC placement contest. Unfortunately, the Silver and Black came up on the short end of every score but put up the good fight in every contest.
Against Valley, junior Devinn Moore worked the circle and was relieved by sister Jasmine halfway through. The two Moore's team work was not enough to get the win though as the Lumber Jills took the win, 8-5. Junior Alex Bubenchik hit two doubles.
Williamstown handed the Lady Knights the loss on April 23, 17-7. The Consolidated team saw some success at the plate in the game with Bubenchik and Bailey Smith placing two singles apiece. Senior Martina Parrish smacked a double and a triple at the plate and Kali Shanabarger and Devinn Moore each contributed singles.
