Once they decided they were going to make that change, they went to their pitching coaches and started pitching from that distance. It hasn't been a big deal pitching or offensively.

Courtney made some great plays for us tonight. She chased down two of them that probably prevented runs.

We only had 10 girls for a couple of games. It went through the whole team.

With this being the only game for us this week, I don't know whether they got comfortable or what. Hats off to Lemon Bay though, they came out ready to play.

We needed somebody to come in there and stop them. And what she did was huge.

Jessica pitched a great game. Getting that first win will hopefully kick-start her the rest of the season.

We're giving up extra runs on errors.
