Escondido High School’s Spring 2017 girl’s Varsity softball team has so far had a successful season this year.
The girl’s Varsity softball team will play 28 games this softball season and may get to go to the CIF championship.
There are six Seniors on the Varsity team: Sara Nava, Brynn Miller, Carla Bologna, Annabelle DelBosque, Grace Finn and Haley Atilano.
Cary Weiler is the coach for the Varsity softball team. Weiler has been coaching Softball for 37 years and he started coaching when his daughter was seven.
“I like seeing the girls be successful,” said Weiler.
Senior Grace Finn is on the Varsity team and has been playing softball since she was 5 or 6 years old. Finn plays center field and plans to continue playing softball at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio after she graduates.
Finn’s favorite part of being on the Varsity team is playing with all her friends.
Senior Brynn Miller was the catcher for the EHS Varsity softball team last year and this year Miller plays shortstop. Miller has been playing softball for 13 years and has been on the Varsity team for three years and plans to continue playing softball at Doane University in Nebraska after she graduates.
“I just like playing the game and winning,” said Miller.
The Softball season ends toward the end of May right before Memorial Day on May 29.
At the end of the softball season, there’s a Softball Banquet which is held in the PAC where Novice, Junior Varsity, and Varsity teams gather to have dinner and get awards. Even the parents get to participate with the teams.
