Quote of the Day – This week’s quote is from Carl Sandburg.  Carl Sandburg said, “Yesterday is gone, tomorrow may never come, but today is here!”  Today is a wonderful day to celebrate all the good things you have in life.  Take the initiative to try something new.  If you take that first step, the next few are much easier to take.

South Girls’ Softball News – Yesterday, The Lady Rams won their game against Dock Mennonite Academy with a score of 17-5.  All the girls put in a great amount of effort to achieve this win.  In the infield there were many plays for first baseman Sophia Vargo, shortstop Allison Ashby, 2nd baseman Maddy Gebhard, and 3rd baseman Jayne Lafty.  In the outfield, Bella Polachek, Erin Leight, and Madelyn Clemens were always ready to get the ball and showed a great amount of effort on the field.  Lauren Saks pitched a complete game and showed mental toughness.  Olivia Ferraro did an amazing job at protecting the plate while catching to prevent the other team from scoring.  Many of the girls scored runs: including Sophia Vargo, Lauren Saks, Maddy Gebhard, Olivia Ferraro, Erin Leight, Bella Polachek, Bailey Winter, and Taryn McHugh.  All the girls did a good job at base running and stealing.  It was an amazing win for our team.  Coach McCann and Coach Arnold are very proud of the team!  Way to go Lady Rams!  Today’s practice is cancelled due to the rain.  Our next game is tomorrow at home for both varsity and JV vs. Pennfield.
