Softball seeks swagger: Millerettes 20-4 overall

The Yukon softball team started 2016 with a bang, as they were scoring a lot of runs in blowout wins over some strong competition.
However, like many other sports teams, the Millerettes have hit a midseason lull. They are still winning the majority of their games, as they currently sit 20-4 overall and 10-1 in district play, but they aren’t playing their best softball.
“Very pleased with how the season has gone thus far,” Yukon coach Katy Hoke said. “The girls have worked very hard and the pieces have come together. We had to move several girls out of their normal positions in the field to start the year and they have handled it very well.”
Yukon is currently sitting at a tie at the top of their district with Sand Springs, but the Lady Sandites beat the Millerettes in Yukon last week and hold the tie-breaker. The rematch between Yukon and Sand Springs will be this coming Thursday at Sand Springs. The winner of that game will win the district.
The top two seeds in each district get to host a regional.
The final home game for the Millerettes will take place at 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. in a Senior Night double-header with Enid.
“I feel like we have hit a bit of a midseason lull,” Hoke said. “We aren’t quite as excited and focused as I think we need to be. I would like to see more excitement, more confidence, more of a winning attitude every time we take the field. I want to see some swagger in our dugout. I believe we have the best overall lineup in the state 1-9 but our mental toughness needs to improve for us to achieve our goals.”
