REED CITY \u2013 Skiler Brigham has settled into a varsity role with the Reed City softball team very nicely. That seemed to be the case Saturday at the Reed City Invitational. Brigham had the game-winning single with two outs in the bottom of the seventh in a 1-0 verdict over Comstock Park in the title game. \u201cShe\u2019s settled into a left field starting spot,\u201d said Reed City coach Roger Steig. \u201cShe bats ninth for us. Coming up in bottom of the seventh with two outs, that\u2019s a lot of pressure on a freshman. She had a nice base hit to win the game.\u201d Brigham took the first pitch for a pop fly single to right field. \u201cI just wanted to hit it so I could get that score in,\u201d Brigham said. \u201cWhen I was watching it, it looked like it was going to fall between the two (fielders).\u201d It was a memorable hit for Brigham. \u201cThere were some others that were pretty good,\u201d she said. \u201cFor my freshman year, I think I\u2019ve been hitting it pretty good. You have to be patient and make sure it\u2019s right in the strike zone, not too high not too low.\u201d Defensively she\u2019s been happy with her progress. \u201cI\u2019ve only had a couple of errors,\u201d Brigham said. \u201cI\u2019ve improved a bunch. I didn\u2019t even think I would make varsity.\u201d But she\u2019s happy to be on the varsity while admitting it was intimidating at first. \u201cI thought I wasn\u2019t good enough to be on the team,\u201d she said. \u201cEveryone motivates me and no one looks down on me.\u201d Brigham is the only freshman on the team. \u201cWe hadn\u2019t won the home tournament in awhile,\u201d she said. \u201cWe\u2019re 15-3. We\u2019re working hard in practice and not putting our heads down.\u201d The final weeks of the season are coming up and Brigham hopes to help her teammates end on a memorable note. Winning districts remains a key goal. \u201cWe have to keep our heads up and play hard,\u201d Brigham said.
