Saints Softball Excited About Momentum from First Home Games

Posted: Updated:

For 13 and 1/2 innings things went swimmingly for the Carroll Saints softball team today, and I mean that in terms of they played well and there was a lot of rain. But despite a day where they split the series with UGF 1-1 where they kind of felt like they should have won both, just being able to play in front of their home fans was victory enough.

"It was a great turn out in game one," said Saints head coach Aaron Jackson. "Not the greatest weather and I think we had 300 people here. So I'm just excited to see that support for us."

"I know what Carroll sports are, and how the fans are so into everything, and to see that come in to softball, a new program, was really cool," said Saints freshman outfielder Brittany Hogan."

The support was great, but the Saints really wanted those wins. Losing in the final inning of game two was tough to swallow, but they want to use it as motivation.

"Losing a close game really set a fire in us," said Saints sophomore pitcher Megan Gipe. "And I think we're going to go and kick butt tomorrow, and the other ten times we play them."

"Yeah we play them a lot, but we can never underestimate them," said Hogan. "By the time we get there tomorrow we're going to use what happened that last half inning and come back tomorrow."

The Saints and Lady Argos will be back at it tomorrow afternoon in another double header, this time up in Great Falls. Those games are scheduled for noon and 2 pm, and the Saints will be looking for some revenge.
