The Firebirds certainly had an exciting home opener with multiple lead changes occurring throughout the game! Williams Field put up a good fight, but the Birds came out on top winning 6-5 in the end. Aggressive base running from the Firebirds and dominant pitching down the stretch from Allison Mellemstrand (Fr.) really contributed to the victory today. Freshman Jessica Gordon also had a fantastic day, making a diving catch in the outfield and having a solid hit on the day. Kerrington Schutt (Fr.) was a wall behind the plate, providing fantastic support. Maurielle Noto (Fr.) also had a great day at the plate and in the field, helping lead the Birds to a win. Overall, the game was truly a team effort, and the first of many victories to come for the Firebirds! Congratulations Junior Varsity on your first home win of the season!
