THS softball team ties ranked Cheyenne East


CHEYENNE – The Torrington High School girls’ softball team stepped up to the challenge in a double-header against the Cheyenne East junior varsity team on April 9. 

The first game between Torrington and a Cheyenne East team containing several members of the No. 1-ranked Thunderbird varsity squad ended in a 3-3 tie.

“In the first game, the girls hit the ball well,” coach Robin Schainost said. “East had a fast pitcher, but Torrington players were patient at the plate and got walks. We also ran the bases relatively aggressively. We held Cheyenne to a tie at the bottom of the fifth inning – we considered this a moral victory against top-ranked players.”

Sophomore pitcher Kennedy Reinhardt played a “great game” against Cheyenne East in the first matchup, striking out seven opponents over the course of five innings.

Cheyenne East rallied in the second game to prevail, 11-2. Due to illnesses or injuries, Torrington made several alterations to its fielders.

“We made some changes in positions, but the girls stepped up and played good defense,” Schainost said. “We picked off a few of Cheyenne’s players on second and third bases. We’ll keep working on improvement and we’ll get there.”
