Windsor's key hits keep playoff hopes alive



Crunch time is here. The Windsor softball team appears to be right on the bubble of making the playoffs or not, needing every win it could get.

That made the 11-1 victory over Roosevelt on Tuesday big, and the fact that it came on an emotional senior day made it even more special.

“It’s awful. I hate the last home game every year,” said coach Sandi Cummings after celebrating the careers of the five seniors on the team.

The Wizards (9-8-1, 7-6 Tri-Valley) took advantage of errors from Roosevelt (10-8, 6-7) to take control of the game in the second inning. Windsor scored six runs in the inning on six hits, with big blows coming from Kendall Johnson, Delaney Hays and two hits in the inning from Christina Ferris.

Cummings said it’s hard to predict if the Wizards will make the postseason with new guidelines deciding the at-large bid, she just knows that this was a big win, and a victory in the final game of the season against Mead would also be huge. The victory helped the Wizards take sole possession of fourth place in the conference.

“I think they know it’s getting down to the wire and we have to, if we want to have any chance at postseason we need to win these last two,” Cummings said.
