The varsity softball team won the Santa Fe Indian School tournament on March 28 and 29, defeating McCurdy 16-1, beating East Mountain 15-5, and winning the championship against Moriarty with a score of 9-5. However, the team lost its recent double header against Albuquerque High with scores of 16-0 and 15-0.

The girls have been working hard to make this season one to remember. Anjoli Griego, who plays shortstop and catcher, says, “We are a strong group of girls. We are on our way to victory this year. I feel it!”

New coach Andy Villa (also known as “Grandpa”) has been getting the girls prepared for the season. “The girls still need to work on plenty of things, but they have improved a lot from the first practice till now,” Grandpa says.

Grandpa also ordered new equipment and other accessories for the team because he feels, “They deserve it for the hard work and dedication they are putting into softball.” (For more information on Coach Villa, check out this story: https://demontattler.com/7468/showcase/behind-the-scenes-with-grandpa

The Demonettes have progressed a lot from last year, when their varsity record was 3-22.

“We started off rough, but we are getting so much better,” explains Vanessa Lopez, who plays second base. “This is our year.”

“I love my team,” pitcher and catcher Mya Gonzales states. “I couldn’t ask for better teammates — it doesn’t get better than this.”
