The Foxes kicked off their 2021 softball season with a thriller. The Foxes faced their former conference rival Kaneland, and what a meet up it was! The lead changed a couple times between the Foxes and Knights, but neither team was willing to give in. The Foxes finally scored the go ahead run in the top of the ninth and they were able to hold off the Knights at the bottom of the inning. In her debut on the YHS softball field Sophomore Madi Reeves struck out 15 and gave up 3 earned runs in the complete 9 inning game. At the plate Kayla Tranter led the team going 3/5 with a homerun and two doubles, followed by Mackenzie Melzer (3/5-2B, 2-1B) and Ellie Alvarez (HR, 2B).
