Thursday’s Varsity Lady Pirate matchup started with three seniors recognizing their Influential Staff members from the Greensburg High School. First up was Senior Kayla Haycock. Kayla recognized Mr. Keith Hipskid. She said, “You’ve greeted me almost every morning with the biggest smile and it always made my day. You have been one of my biggest supporters and you always encouraged me to do my best.”
Senior Emily Million recognized Meredith Acra as her Influential Staff member. She said, “Meredith has taught me how to positively represent myself in and out of my Pirateer uniform. She has taught me that if you want something you need to work hard every day until you get it.” Million added, “I’ve grown as a person thanks to your support.”
Last, to recognize an influential person in her life was Senior Mykenzi Morlan. She recognized her dad who happens to be Coach Ryan Morlan. Mykenzi remarked, “Having my dad as my senior mentor may seem like the obvious choice but I couldn’t have thought of someone better for the role.” Mykenzi added, “No matter sports or school or life you have been there to coach me through it for as long as I can remember … Thank you for pushing me to be my best even when I don’t always want to …”
As the recognition concluded, the Lady Pirates took the field. It only took the Bulldogs two minutes to start a strong scoring run on the Pirates. Senior Captain Ella Lowe would see 13 shots on goal in the first half. She managed to stop eight, but five made the scoreboard. Taking the Pirates into the half 5-0.
The second half was much of the same. The Pirates Defense could not find an answer to the break through runs and crossing combinations the Bulldog used throughout the game. Lowe would see ten more shots on goal and would allow five to settle in the net. Leaving the score 10-0 at the buzzer.
This brings the Lady Pirates to 2-2 for the season and 0-1 in our conference. Due to Greensburg schools moving to virtual learning and the suspension on high school sports, the next scheduled game will be September 18 against Rushville at home with a start time of 10am.
