Playing on senior night in an impromptu home game, the Lady Irish treated its devoted fans to quite the show as they defeated Van Buren, 10-3 on May 9, in a non-conference competition played on Mercy Field.
An early lead helped propel the Irish to a victory. CCHS scored five of their 10 runs in a big second inning including a Grand Slam by senior, Alex Bronikowski.
Senior, Abbey Calmes earned the win on her big day pitching 7 complete innings and allowing only 3 runs and recording 5 strikeouts.
It was a total team effort and all 12 members of the Lady Irish Softball team contributed to the win over Van Buren.
It was a perfect night to honor our 6 seniors, Alex Bronikowski, Abbey Calmes, Maddi Cochell, Gabby Hurst, Nicole Moeller and Olivia Morrison. We thank you all for the 4 years of hard work and dedication that you put into the softball program. You will forever be a part of the Central Catholic Lady Irish Softball family.
