Little River Softball-Team of the Month-Presented by Visit Wichita

Led by principal and first-year head coach Randy Hendrickson, the Little River Lady Redskins’ softball team set a school record for the most wins in school history with 11.

The Lady Redskins were led by a young group of players who had their sights set on getting over the hump and turning the losing ways around.

“We have stressed fundamentals and game situation awareness,” Hendrickson said. “For the most part, we are a young team with very little experience.”

Little River was led by sophomore shortstop Addie Strecker, sophomore second base Ella Stansbury, sophomore pitcher Kinsley Wohletz, and junior pitcher and centerfielder Jailyn Millar.

“We are having fun and improving as the year progresses,” Hendrickson said.

Hendrickson and the team know that they are on the fringe of becoming something very special and continue to let that be known day in and day out.

“Our goals are to be a better team at the end of the season than when we started,” Hendrickson said.  “We stress being a great teammate and being accountable to one another.”

In the final game before their season ended, the Lady Redskins, were very close to knocking off a tough Bennington team.

The Lady Redskins found themselves down 4-1, when a big seventh inning led to a 4-4 tie before Bennington was able to pull away 7-5 ending Little River’s season at Regionals.

Despite losing and falling short of making it to state, Hendrickson remained positive because he knows that “the best has yet to come”.
