The Thunderbirds are coming off of a loss against Taft, being shut out 29-0, continuing their 5 game losing streak and leaving them with a 1-9 overall record and 0-2 league record. The odds seem heavily stacked in the Tiger’s favor but in the words of Sonia Wedel, Softball Head Coach at Wasco High, “...Softball has expanded quite a bit in the last 10 years and overall high school teams are stronger and the competition is tougher. We can't take any team or game lightly.”
