Carroll Softball Nearly Unbeaten During April

By Kempson Cross SWX

Carroll College softball is looking to build upon back-to-back series victories on Treasure State soil as they hit the road once again this weekend.

The Fighting Saints still have yet to play at their typical Helena stomping grounds of Centennial Park. They started last week by sweeping a tripleheader against Eastern Oregon at Grizzly Softball Field and then beat Northwest Christian in both games of their Friday doubleheader at Northwest Park.

“In situations where you could have just said this is too tough we decided to come and fight and it was good to see that. Our pitching staff got back to the pitching staff that we knew and got back on a roll ,” said Aaron Jackson.

“I just feel like I had a rough start earlier in the season but I kind of got my head together, better focus, really working on keeping my ball low, and making those adjustments that I didn’t make early in the year and it’s really been paying off,” said Brooke Brown.

Carroll lost on Saturday to snap a season-long 5-game win streak. Saints head coach Aaron Jackson says the team’s mindset can still improve.

“We’ve shown that we’ve got multiple kids that can get the job done and so we have to adopt an un-selfish attitude and approach. It doesn’t matter if you succeed individually if we don’t succeed as a program,” said Aaron Jackson.

“If you get an opportunity you have to take advantage of it and you have to do it to the best of your ability and everybody has a role and everybody knows their role and everybody has to do their role for us to be successful and then just cheering each other on at all times. I mean, it doesn’t matter is somebody comes in for me or someone else. Just cheering everybody on no matter what,” said Kendall Mooney.

The Saints hope to win a third straight series when they visit the College of Idaho Yotes this weekend.
