Freshman Olivia Bullock prepares to throw the softball during after school practice at Birmingham Community Charter High School.

After many fairly unsuccessful tournament games, the girls softball team is hoping to make it up with playing a better season. Many girls are rigorously preparing in hopes of a great season ahead.

“I am super prepared,” said JV player  Olivia Bullock. “Whenever we practice, I give it my all. I don’t talk to anybody. I just focus on the game.”

So far, the softball team has lost most of the games they played, some being lost drastically, with a score of 20-2.

“I think our coach wants us from losing heart in ourselves, because we drop our heads as soon as we start to lose,” Bullock said.

Genevieve Avalos, a sophomore on the Birmingham Community Charter High School varsity softball team is also training hard and toughening up, practicing every day with her team for over two hours after school.

The girls have many drills, including practicing throws, fielding and hitting. Since a majority of the team is young and new, the varsity coach is striving to improve the players and get them ready for their later years and seasons ahead.

The team is excited to compete again and focused on winning against rivaling schools.

“We want to beat El Camino,” said Avalos. “It’s our biggest rival right now along with Granada. We’re looking forward to those games.”
