Savanna Griebling (21) has been an exceptional player this year. She plans on attending college on a softball scholarship as a result of her hard work and dedication.

This past weekend on September 19, 2020, Mead Mavericks Varsity Softball traveled to Greeley to take on the Greeley Central Wildcats.

As the sun beat down onto the field and the cheering and chanting could be heard from both dugouts, Mead started the game with 5 runs in the first inning. There were 7 hits in the first inning, including an impressive 2-run double by Veronica Elsis #1 (‘21).

The second inning was more eventful for the Mavericks offense as they scored 12 runs. Delaney Wilson #8 (‘21) got a 3-run homerun. Savanna Griebling #9 (‘21) also hit a 3-run homerun. The score came to 17-0 after the first 2 innings.

In the third inning, Mead scored another 5 runs. Elsis came through again with a 3-run double. Maddox Boston #7 (‘22) also contributed with an RBI single.

Mead was stellar on defense. Pitcher Carlie Nagy #11 (‘23) only gave up 1 hit throughout the entire game. The defense backed her up with some great fielding.

Veronica Elsis was the RBI leader in the game with 5 RBI’s.

The final score was 22-0 in favor of Mead. The game was called by run rule in the third inning.

The game was enjoyable to watch if you were a Mead Maverick fan. With the win, Mead improved to a perfect record of 12-0.  If you were rooting for the Central Wildcats, then it was a bit of an unfortunate game. With this tough loss they now have a record 1-10.

Mead’s next game is against the Windsor Wizards at Windsor High School on Tuesday, September 22.

We’ll see if the Mead Varsity Softball team can keep a perfect record against the Windsor team, who are looking for revenge after their 9-5 loss against Mead earlier in the season.
