Lady Norsemen Softball

The Lady Norsemen softball program is wrapping up the season with a record of 14-6. They finished second in the conference with a record of 10-4. The Ladies received the first seed in their regional which began on Monday, May 13th. The top seed gave them a first round bye, so they did not take the field until Tuesday night against Paw Paw. Lady Norsemen have won the regional championship and the first game of the sectional. They will play for the sectional championship on Saturday, May 25th at 11 a.m. in Varna. Coach Holman said the team has been in a minor slump lately, but he is confident the ladies will bounce back for the post-season games.

Saturday, May 4 was senior day when six seniors on the team were honored: Dominic DiClementi, Kenny Hume, Joe Hughes, Chris Murawski, Tyler Wiesbrook, and Wyatt Williamson. The Norsemen played Earlville/Leland and had a good game; the seniors played their best and everyone else played a great game too. Earlville/Leland played well and led the whole time. After a good game Earlville/Leland took the win 8-4, and the Norsemen boys were upset that they had not won the special game, but Coach J.R. Veliez said, “I am sorry that we couldn’t get a win for you senior boys today, but it’s time to get ready for regionals. So you boys as seniors are gonna have to lead this team through it and show that you are seniors.” The seniors still walked off the field with their heads high and their parents proud of them. Now May is the start of regionals, and Newark ball players are preparing themselves to do their best and earn the wins.
