Glacier Softball Looking to Make a Run

Posted: Updated:
The Galcier Wolfpack entered this season as defending Western Division champs. They were slow out of the gates this season, but have turned it around as of late.

"Well we didn't start out the way we wanted to after finishing the season so strong last year, we were expecting more and I think we realized we have to take it a step farther and actually earn it. So I think that is starting ti click for us now and we are starting to act as a team," said Junior Shortstop Kayla Russell.

"It's been going well, we are starting to peak right now which is good and we've been on a winning streak lately so hopefully we can keep that up," said Junior second Baseman Kayleena Ikeda.

Glacier softball is in it's eighth season in Kalispell. Last year they finished third at state and the team has seen the community support as they continue to grow as a program.

"We've been really excited this year even with the bad weather we ave been able to get some fans to the games and I think the program has generated some excitement. Not only are the girls in our program ready to go but we have good community support and I think it's building behind us," said Head Coach Andy Fors.

The Wolfpack are currently fourth in the western standings but not far behind the leaders. They have an experienced team and they feel confident about their chances in the latter part of the season.

"It's good having a lot of girls coming back from last year we know what it feels like to get there win and play games, so I think we have a good chance this year of bringing home a trophy," said Senior Catcher Hannah Atlee.

"Finishing strong last year we knew what it took and we weren't expected to take third last year and I think we proved ourselves and we need to prove ourselves again this year because I think we can do so much better too," said Russell.

Glacier hosts both Helena schools this weekend which will be key for them to move up the standings.

"After this week we will kind of know where we are at but we are in great position to make a run here towards the end of the conference schedule and be ready for the state tournament we just have to make sure we are headed in the right direction," said Fors.
