The Woodward-Granger Hawks’ softball team (1-1) had their season come to a close after falling 6-2 to the Collins-Maxwell-Baxter Raiders (1-0).
At Collins on Wednesday, July 5 the Hawks - who played as the home team - refused to go quietly without a fight. In their final Class 2A Region 7 contest of the season they managed to keep the game close for six innings.
Riley Jamison, Hawks’ starting pitcher, tossed the complete game seven inning game where she gave up six runs - four earned - on six hits, walking five and striking out one.
Jamison did her best from preventing the Raiders from dominating the game. She allowed two early runs in the second and then pitched two scoreless before the Raiders added a run in the top of the fifth.
After being held to zero runs through five, the Hawks put together a two run sixth to inch within a run of a possible tie.
In the top of the seventh the Raiders quieted the Hawks chances when they scored three runs for the eventual four run win.
Offensively the Hawks scored their two runs on two hits in 26 at bats with three stolen bases and drawing two walks.
Five Hawks’ seniors, Jamison and Kendra Husmann, both who recorded an RBI, along with Miranda Aunspach, Maggi Mallon, and Bree Lesch bid farewell to a solid career.
