The Lady Warriors are still looking for their first victory following an 0-3 week on the softball diamond.

Schuyler lost road games 11-1 to Wisner-Pilger, 12-0 to Aurora and 11-1 to Crete, all in four innings, to fall to 0-11 on the season.

The Lady Warriors were limited to three hits in the Sept. 5 loss at Wisner-Pilger. Jaiden Inselman had a pair of singles and Kaylie Bachmann accounted for the other hit.

Inselman drove in Jakelin Mejia for Schuyler’s lone run.

She also started on the mound for Schuyler, pitching 3 2/3 innings while allowing 11 runs on 13 hits. Only six of the runs were earned as the Lady Warriors committed six errors.

“Jaiden did very well pitching for us. She did a good job of hitting her spots as she only allowed two walks and hit one batter,” Schuyler head coach Clarissa Dunn said. “Wisner did touch her for 13 hits, but we also had the six errors, which hurt us defensively.”

“I thought our outfielders also played well tonight. Nicollette Harding had a great game in center field for us. She did a good job of cutting off the ball and getting it back to the infield,” Dunn added.

Schuyler also drew five walks in the contest, but left three runners in scoring position.

Wisner-Pilger scored three runs in the first inning, one in the second, four in the third and four more in the fourth to end the game early.

The Lady Warriors played a triangular Sept. 7 in Crete against conference foes Aurora and Crete.

“We ended up losing to Aurora 12-0, but we looked like we were still sleeping on the bus when the game began,” Dunn said. “We were very slow and sluggish and I feel like that is the reason we ended up losing to this team as bad as we did.”

Jaiden Sock was the lone bright spot offensively for SCHS as she had the team’s only hit.

Inselman was once again the starting pitcher for Schuyler.

“Jaiden allowed 10 hits, but we also committed four errors in just over three innings that really hurt us again. All in all, this was a very disappointing game,” Dunn said.

Sock also had Schuyler’s only hit in the loss to Crete, which is ranked seventh in Class B. Strikeouts continued to plague the Lady Warriors, who went down on strikes seven times.

Despite the loss, Dunn felt better about how her team came out for the second game of the night.

“After the first game and a talk in the outfield about picking it up and getting things done against Crete, the girls played much better in the second game. We moved a few people around in an effort to find our best possible fielding team, and even though there were a few more errors, they gave it everything they had and played hard,” Dunn said. “Crete went on and beat Aurora 9-1, which only proves to me that we should have played Aurora closer than what we did.”

Schuyler committed nine errors against Crete, but Dunn also noted that her team made some solid defensive plays.

The Lady Warriors host Lakeview and York for a triangular on Thursday before heading to Saturday’s David City Invite. They’re on the road Tuesday at Central City.
