NACHES - Things didn't pan out well for Grandview Thursday afternoon as the Lady Greyhounds fastpitch team took on the Naches Rangers.
Grandview fell to Naches in both games of the doubleheader, losing the first match-up of the afternoon 9-2, and the second game 12-6.
Grandview Assistant Coach Mark Ware said although the team suffered two losses he still saw some good things happening on the field.
Ware said he saw some good pitching from senior Mari Cornejo, who started pitching in the first game and was relieved by senior Sarah Trevino after a few innings.
"There were some individual plays that were quite good," Ware said.
One fo the two plays that stand out from yesterday's match-up against Naches came in the first game that involved Trevino. Ware said the senior was on the pitching rubber when the batter hit a hard line drive straight at her. Trevino jumped up and caught the ball in the web of her glove.
"It was a wow play," Ware said of Trevino's high flying antics.
In the second game of the afternoon it was senior Cheyanne Trevino's turn to shine. Ware said Cheyanne, who was playing second base, went to her right and backhanded a hard hit ground ball. He said she went down to get it and threw from her knees to first base, where Trevino made a great stretch and just caught the ball. Ware noted that Trevino caught the ball just in time to out the Naches runner.
"It was an ESPN highlight moment," Ware said of the work done by the two seniors.
Despite some good plays, Ware said the team still has some improvements to make.
"We need to try to get the game into their heads," Ware said.
The Grandview team will take to the field again Tuesday in a non-league match-up with Sunnyside Christian High School.
