“We felt happy for him, but we felt honored that we could get him his 500th win,” Kaitlyn Winkler said referring to the team’s emotion after accomplishing the feat. “We worked really hard to get that for him.”
The Cobras look to finish the last three weeks of the season strong moving into postseason play. It will certainly be a challenge as Kankakee, Heartland, Illinois Central, all make return trips to Champaign in the coming weeks. The Cobras are a combined 1-5 against them.
Despite the tough road ahead, Winkler and the rest of the Cobras believe they can ascend to the highest peak. “As long as we keep the positive mindset that we have going,” he said. “I have no doubt in my mind that we can reach those goals.”
Only three weeks of regular season remain. Come out at 2:30 p.m. on Friday and support Cobra softball as the team hosts No. 6 Kankakee.
