As the Wildcats prepare for their tough close to the regular season there are many things they can work on. The team needs to learn from their mistakes in the seventh innings of this game and use them to improve. “We need to pitch well and play good defense,” Frey said. “Not give up free bases and make them earn their runs.  We need to produce runs when we have runners in scoring position.”

There was fierce competition in this event and it took a lot of preparation. “I put in countless hours over the winter training for track, and during the spring, I've been training even harder,” Marshall said. “Having goals and benchmarks set for each week leading up to this meet allowed me to place as well as I did.”
