VALRICO — The Sickles softball team has been up and down this season, beating some of the best teams in the state, then turning around and losing to some folks they probably had no business losing to.“When we keep up the energy and limit our mistakes we’ve had some great success,” Sickles coach Al Bowman said. “It’s a matter of how we show up.”Wednesday night the Gryphons showed up at Bloomingdale hitting on all cylinders, and in the end they walked away with a resounding 7-1 victory in a Class 8A region quarterfinal.One of the best performances came from freshman Robyn Herron, who not only earned the complete-game victory but went 2-for-3 at the plate with a three-RBI triple in the top of the seventh.“I was a little nervous in the beginning but when my team scored to get the lead (going up 1-0 in the third inning) I felt a lot better,” Herron said. “They give me confidence.”Sickles (21-7) made it 2-0 in the fifth when senior shortstop Natalie Zweig smacked an RBI triple to deep rightfield.Bloomingdale (16-9) cut the gap to 2-1 in the bottom of the fifth, but the Gryphons sealed the deal with a five-run burst in the seventh with two bunt singles, a walk, an infield single and Herron’s three-run triple.“I don’t normally hit too much so that was exciting,” Herron said. “When I hit it (a shot just inside the rightfield line) and saw it get past the (first baseman’s glove) I said, ‘Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, run, run, run.’ Getting those three runs really made me feel confident. I knew I could relax and finish the (bottom of the seventh inning)."Sickles will host Plant City on Tuesday.
