Arabians win on the road

In one of the their last road games of the season, the Arabians faced Carrizo Springs on April 5th and won 7-2 after seven innings. “Defensively we played another great game committing no errors and turning one double play behind winning pitcher Isabella Gutierrez. Bella did a good job for us in the circle. Our hitting started off slow, but we managed to get some timely hits to drive in runs. We struggled staying on top and driving the ball the majority of the game. We need to make the adjustment sooner than what we did Friday night. With that being said, the coaches and I are very proud of the girls. Go Arabians!” said Coach Juan Gonzalez.
