The bats were productive for the Green Wave softball team Monday but Summerville coach Heather Tucker says there is still room for improvement.
“Overall the team is playing okay right now, but we are not playing up to our full potential,” Tucker said. “I am hoping with region games starting we are able to play complete games. We want error free defense, solid pitching and a good offensive performance at the plate. We haven’t had many games up to this point where we have performed all three parts well.”
Summerville did have several players with multiple hits Monday as it earned a 10-1 win over Goose Creek. Taylor Belfiore was 3 for 3 at the plate while both Anna Gluhosky and Taylor Powell were 3 for 4.
Senior Taylor Wuerfel had the pitching win.
The Green Wave scored a run in the second inning and doubled its lead in the third when Powell tripled and came home on a base hit.
In the fourth, Summerville scored two runs off a pair of errors and two runs off a single by Anna Gluhosky for a 6-0 lead.
Summer Jenkins and Belfiore led off the bottom of the fifth with back-to-back homeruns. Later in the inning, Dani Halajcsik scored on a single by Powell.
Goose Creek’s only run came in the top of the sixth. The leadoff batter walked, moved over on a groundout and scored on a Summerville error.
Sarah Windham scored Summerville’s final run in the bottom of the sixth on a Goose Creek error.
Summerville improved to 10-0 on the season with the victory.
