If not for a few mental mistakes, the Kapa’a softball squad would be right in the thick of things in the KIF softball standings. According to head coach Rory Rayno, the team’s attitude this year, has changed.
“I guess their hearts are more into the game this year. They worked pretty hard during the summer,” Rayno said.
Although they remain winless at 0-3, the Warriors are more dedicated to the sport.
“We’re doing pretty good, but the mental errors need to be eliminated,” Rayno said.
At the Kaua’i/Waimea game on Wednesday, the Warriors were out in full force, taking notes and scouting both squads.
“I really appreciate the girls’ effort this season and I told them to never give up,” the third-year head coach said.
The Warriors go after their first win today against Waimea (2-0) in doubleheader action at Waimea Canyon Park, starting at 2 p.m.
