Consistency guiding dominant season for G-E-T Softball

G-E-T Softball is in the midst of a historic season and have sights set on a deep WIAA postseason run.

Head coach Dan Stuhr has been with the program for 30 years, and says this is the first time the Red Hawks have finished with an undefeated conference record.

Hitting, pitching, and defense have all been there this season for a team with eight seniors and four juniors. Senior pitcher Genna O’Neill has gone 19-1 and had an ERA under 1.00 in conference games–she gives a ton of credit to the defense behind her.

The batting order 1-9 has had a ton of success; the 9-hitter is currently batting .370, so everyone can be a difference maker any given game.

The Red Hawks consider themselves a family, and this family won’t be intimidated by anyone in the playoffs.

“From the start of the year we knew what our goals were going to be and that we had the team to do,” senior center fielder Lindsey Lettner said. “We’ve just worked for that goal every day and made sure to bust our butts at practice.”

“Consistency is really hard because one or two plays can make a huge difference in this game, and I think that’s something we’ve really worked towards–playing good defense and trying to hit the ball consistently,” O’Neill said. “Being able to go 12-0 against some pretty prevalent teams in conference has been really special to us, and just proved if we work together, buckle down and put our best efforts forward every single game, that it will make a difference.”

G-E-T is a No. 3 seed in Division 3 and will host their first regional game next Tuesday at 5 p.m. against Neillsville.
