The Rambelles softball team dominated the Rangers on Feb. 8, winning 5-0 and ending their weekend on a 6-0 streak.

“We were going for 6-0 this weekend, and that’s what we got,” Madison Greenwell, freshman, said.

Greenwell set an amazing pace for the game, scoring a run during the first inning, though the Rangers put up a good defense after the run. It wasn’t long after that the Rambelles scored a double during the bottom of the fifth inning.

With a strong offense there must also be a strong defense, and the Rambelles freshman pitcher, Brandy Marlett, did not fail to impress.

“I feel like I have to do just as good as a senior does and dominate,” Marlett said. “Because I am a pitcher I feel like I need to lead the team.”

Marlett has been playing as a pitcher for 12 years and even though the pressure is prominent, it makes her performance in games even stronger. It’s important to stay focused the whole entire game, Marlett said.

The motivation from the dugout during the course of the game found each player being constantly motivated with personalized chants before going out to hit.

“Something we preach on is supporting one another and creating a lot of energy from our dugout,” Travis Scott, head coach, said.

The Rangers threw two quality pitchers at ASU, as well as a lineup of very talented hitters, but this was no match for the effort put forth by the Rambelles.

“Brandy Marlett throwing a two hitter against a team like that is an outstanding accomplishment,’’ Scott said. “Those freshmen played really big this weekend- to have your freshmen step in and play that well immediately is very comforting.” 

Scott said that the Rambelles had an outstanding weekend and was glad they could stand 6-0 in front of their home crowd.

With the Rambelles already holding the trophy for the conference championship it is important that they stay motivated for the season ahead. “This region is extremely difficult with some really good teams,” Scott said. “I think we have a group that will be right there in the middle of it again.”
