The Windermere High School varsity softball team defeated Lakewood Ranch 5-4 during an 8-inning game Wednesday, March 8. 

Junior pitcher Lexi King pitched the entire 8 innings, allowing six hits, four runs, walking two and striking out six for an ERA of 1.75. 

Runs were scored by Kaitlyn Defranco, Tessa Olofson, Sophie Shaik, Hazel Seppi and Elizabeth Wise. 

During the 2021-22 season, the Lady Mustangs were the last opponent the Lady Wolverines played against, as they bested them during the regional semifinals 8-2, to later become state champions. 

This year however, Windermere and Lakewood Ranch have faced each other twice on the softball field, and the Lady Wolverines have come home with a "W" both times to currently own an overall season record of 4-2. 

Windermere is set to travel to Foundation Academy at 5 p.m. Thursday, March 9.
