Hershey Girls Softball lost 13-4 by the Mechanicsburg Wildcats on Wednesday, May 1, 2019.

The Wildcats jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead in the first, and Hershey responded with a run.  

However, the Mechanicsburg offense was simply too much putting up four runs in the third, and two in the fifth and seventh innings. And despite a strong three run second inning, Hershey was defeated easily.

Hershey Head Coach Maria Mrozowski said her team’s defense fell short of her expectations.  “I’m a little disappointed that we made as many mistakes as we did,” said Mrozowski, “We were competitive with Mechanicsburg the first time we played them, and I was hoping to compete with them at the same level.”

Hershey Softball will face the Palmyra Cougars at home for their senior night on May 7, 2019.
