After advancing to the sectional final of the playoffs, the CHS varsity softball team lost to the defending state champions, Northwest 9-4 May 16.

The Coyotes finished 13-4 in the regular season earning them a first round bye heading into the playoffs. In the second round, the Clarksburg defeated Wootton 1-0 by scoring their only run in the bottom of the sixth inning.  

I have been very pleased and impressed especially with our younger players” coach Jen Hoffman said. “They put the work in and it has paid off.”

The Coyotes have made it to the sectional final each of the last four years, but have only made it to the regional final once. After their most recent loss to Northwest, the Coyotes are just 1-5 against the Jaguars over that time.

“Heading into the playoffs, we were pretty confident,” freshman Abby Brenowitz said. “We really finished the season strong and we were all hungry for more.”

Brenowitz is one of the two starting freshman on the team this year, but the Coyotes were led by a strong group of seniors including pitcher Sydney Bencal and outfielder Phylicia McInnis.

”I think next year is going to be hard without the seniors and well have to work hard to get where we want to be,” Brenowitz added.

The team will be losing four seniors this year, but have many starters returning for next year.

“We ended the season last year in a bad way, and we all wanted that revenge” McInnis said. “I felt confident heading into the playoffs. We all did.”

I was very confident that we would achieve our goals we set for the season, which was to win Sectionals, then Regionals then on to States,” Hoffman added.  “We were a young team, but good. [We] had talented players and strong leadership from our senior players as well.”

Now the Coyotes will have to work hard to get past Northwest next season.
