WICHITA, Kan.—With the season just under half way over, the North softball program has been struggling to find out what it’s going to take to come together as a team. Overcoming a 0-5 record already will be a hard pill to swallow, but the team has shown no quit as they stick to their core values in never giving up and playing one game at a time.
Along with facing a difficult record, the Skins started out with a huge obstacle with the construction that has completely taken up their practice field, forcing them to practice elsewhere; Anywhere space is available. Traveling almost every day to practice has continued to plague the team, adding an unwanted stress to their season.
For being a mostly young team, a positive can be seen in this difficult time of the season. In facing these struggles, they can gain competition experience and begin to get more familiar with the pace of the game and adapt accordingly.
Their youth is what will make them stronger throughout the season and the seasons to come as they try to find a source of unity and team work to take home some wins and advance up the latter in the city league rankings.
The Skins next game will be against Andover on Apr. 19 at TRYC starting at 4 p.m.
