Softball team struggles to win

The Bethel softball team is struggling again this year. Last year the team had a very difficult season, winning only two games all year and finishing with a 2-42 record. This year the Pilots are 1-18 and have lost eight straight. The team’s one win came against Goshen College on March 20 when the Pilots won the second game of a doubleheader 5 to 4 here at Bethel.

Junior Allena McElfresh leads the Pilots at the plate. She is batting 265 and has six RBI. Freshman Kathryn Childers is right there with her, hitting 264 and also driving in six runs.

Bethel is playing at Mount Vernon Nazarene on March 28 and is scheduled to play a doubleheader at home against Taylor on March 31.
