Sports Cast for February 25th:

Okeechobee destroyed Fort Pierce Westwood 19-0 in girls’ softball action last night to improve to 6-0 on the season.

Coach Mary Huff said the girls used the game to work on discipline at the plate, base running and staying focused. Kimmy Tijerina had two hits and Elisia Garcia added an RBI double. Kristen Dryden drove home three runs and Lexi Ward had two RBIS.

Garcia said they had to adjust to the slower speeds of the pitches, but she felt the girls responded well

Catcher Taylor Amadon was thrust into that role by injury. She admits it’s been a learning process to learn the position she has never played before. She added some offense in this game to boost her confidence.
