The Heritage girls softball team has jumped out to a stellar 8-6 record with a comeback win over Homestead last night.
The Patriots were heading into the seventh inning down by a score of 5-2. After plating two quick runs, the Patriots found themselves down by a single run. Then, junior, Savanah Wasson stepped up to the plate with two runners on base and hit a three run home run.
When asked about her emotions as she walked up to the plate, Wasson said, “Stepping up to the plate; I was nervous. It was the top of the seventh inning and there were two outs. I knew I had to make my coach proud.” With a 1-0 count, the Homestead pitcher delivered an outside pitch, and Wasson said as soon as the ball hit the bat, “I knew it was gone.”
Seeing her team waiting for her at home plate as she rounded third base was a feeling she will never forget. Looking back on it now, Wasson is ecstatic to be a part of a winning effort against a school of Homestead’s caliber.
The Patriots will play again on Thursday, May 4th at 5 p.m. over at Adams Central High School.
