The Middle School Girls' Softball Team started the season strong winning four out of their first five games. The team then lost a string of close games, to some great teams. However, the group finished their season strong making it to the semifinals of the Middle School Tournament. The team was lucky to have a great group of 8th graders who led them throughout their season: Hannah Lovett, Mary Elaine Mitchell, Jenny Belle Butler, Lucy and Liza Boswell, Elizabeth Sellers and Ivana Baggett. Several of these eighth graders, changed positions during the season and continued to improve their game. After three strong seasons of Middle School Softball, all of these players will have a great opportunity to contribute to either the Junior Varsity team or the Varsity team next year. Coach Wall also played a lot of sixth graders. These young players gained valuable experience this season and will look to fill in where they are needed next season.
