North Atlanta softball is now in full swing as it heads into the middle of their games for a tough 2018 campaign. Despite tough competition and challenging setbacks the team has faced thus far, the squad’s tight bond and range of talent shows that a promising season is in store no matter the results.

The season opener kicked off with a 9 to 7 loss to Pace Academy. Although the result wasn’t promising, the team has gone on to hold a 4 win 8 loss record, which is one of the best opening records the Dubs have had in recent years. Wins from Whitefield, Marietta and Northview have been a huge morale boost for the squad, as team members look to build off of the positive outcomes.

The team’s captain is senior Caroline Partlowe who plays shortstop. The team’s coaches are Sheena Varghese along with Ricky Plante. The two North Atlanta faculty members are joined by community coaches Andy Cimowsky and Wren Williams..

By focusing on the positives of the season thus far, Plante hopes to continue to strengthen morale leading into busy mid-season play. “The girls have put in so much hard work in this season,” said Plante. “We want to finish out strong and continue to improve on our skills to hopefully reach one of the best records we have ever had.”

Last season the squad finished with a somewhat grim record of 2 wins 20 losses, battling with tough region play against powerhouse schools such as Pope, Johns Creek and Cambridge. This season brings new challenges to the team, as they are no longer a part of region play.

The change in status could mean positive things for the Dubs team as they will avoid taking competitive powerhouses straight on. Partlowe knows the team’s strong bond and competitive play will continue to drive the season foward. “Not being in region this season is a new look for us,” said Partlowe. “However, this year I have noticed a change in our energy and communication skills off and on the field.”

In spite of the ongoing challenges associated with playing a tough schedule, North Atlanta softball has the work ethic and undenying bond that represents what it means to be a Warrior.
