Coach Matt Schneider and the Lawrence Little League softball team have a goal for this week’s District 12 Tournament to not only win some games, but put Lawrence softball back on the map.

The team’s first chance to do that will come on Tuesday night when it faces the winner of the game between Millstone-Roosevelt and West Windsor.

“We have a good core group of girls who have played together for a while now,” Schneider said. “Team camaraderie and the way they rally around each other is a big plus. We had a tough year last year, but we might have a chance to surprise some people.”

Schneider preaches to his team that pitching and fundamentals wins games at any level, and believes the strength of this team is its pitching.

“We have make routine plays and get consistent pitching,” Schneider said. “We have to get those key hits when you can. Every run matters in these tournaments, so if and when we get on base, we have to manufacture runs and play solid defense.”

One difference about this tournament is the number of teams increasing from four to six.

“Last year we had Bordentown and Robbinsville and it became a battle of two teams and with six it rounds out the playing field,” Schneider said. “It’s going to be up for grabs.”

Lawrence hopes to be right in the mix.

“Even more important than winning or losing is seeing the girls rally around each other and pick each other up,” Schneider said. “Our goal is to get Lawrence back on the softball map and we’re hoping to get a win or two.”
