Pirettes fall in regional semifinals

It took the state’s No. 1-ranked team to do it, but after falling to Danbury in a best-of-three series last week, the Poth Pirette softball team has been eliminated from the playoffs. The Pirettes end the year as the District 29-2A champs, area champions, regional quarterfinal winners, and as regional semifinalists.

After enjoying a first-round bye in the playoffs, the Pirettes met San Diego in the area championship, and won by the scores of 5-1 and 11-1. Poth then played Bishop in the regional quarterfinals, where Poth won 5-2 and then 4-2. In the regional semifinals, though, the No. 1-ranked Lady Panthers of Danbury proved to be too much, defeating Poth 6-0 and then 1-0.

During the first game of the series, played May 19, the Pirettes had a bit of trouble adjusting to the Danbury pitcher. Sophomore Kaylee Garner registered 12 strikeouts against Poth, and received more than enough run support from the Lady Panther bats.

Danbury scored its first 2 runs of the game in the second inning, added another run in the fifth, and then finished things off with a few in the sixth inning to seal up a 6-0 victory.

After a day of rest, the two teams met on the field again in Weimar May 21, with a trip to the regional championship on the line. Danbury led the series 1-0, but Poth still had a chance.

The Pirettes made terrific adjustments, and the results were obvious in game two. The Pirettes found a way to hold back the Lady Panther offense, and worked hard to keep the series alive.

Unfortunately, Danbury was able to scratch 1 run in the contest, and that was all the Lady Panthers needed. After retiring the side in the top of the seventh inning, Danbury celebrated its victory.

Poth didn’t make the regional finals, but ended the season with a list of accolades. The Pirettes amassed an impressive overall record of 32-7, were perfect at 10-0 in district play, and went farther than any other area team by advancing to the fourth round of playoff competition. The Pirettes will lose several key players to graduation this year, but will return a talented and experienced roster in 2012.

“This is the best group of girls that I have ever had the opportunity to coach,” said Pirette Head Coach Carilee Robbins. “They made my job extremely easy. They worked hard, but had a way to make everything fun.

“We gave Danbury our best shot and it just didn’t swing our way,” she added. “It will be very difficult to lose the six seniors, because they really were the leaders of this team and guided us to many victories. I will miss them dearly.”
