HS Softball: Wilton-Wing’s Schurhamer maintains positive outlook on freshman season

National Sports

Wilton-Wing freshman pitcher Taryn Schurhamer says her job sounds theoretically simple.

“Just getting it across the plate and always being a strike,” Schurhamer said.

And to get to that level of success, “You have to be focused and in the game 24/7. Just always,” Schurhamer said.

But when things didn’t go her way in JV games last year, Schurhamer says she was her own worst enemy.

“I know last year I got in my head a lot, and this year I’m trying to cut back on that,” Schurhamer said.

At times, that can be difficult for her to do, especially when defensive mistakes behind her prolong innings.

“If there’s a lot of negativity, then it’s hard to get rid of it, but if everyone is staying positive, then it’s easier,” Schurhamer said.

But her catcher Lauren Koski says that overall, the young freshman has displayed the mentality of a senior.

“I haven’t really had to go out to the mound much and get her,” Koski said, “but she’s done a lot better this year.

“She’s the one who picks everybody up this year, and she’s gotten so much better about having such a positive attitude, and kind of bringing everybody with her.”

And Schurhamer will to keep that going all season long. 

Wilton-Wing travels to Solen/Standing Rock on May 3 at 4:30.
