The JV softball team won their first game for the first time in the past three years against McNeil with a score of 7-6 on March 10. At the beginning of the first inning, the girls scored first to reach 4-0, but McNeil kept coming back up to get ahead. The team fought hard to get this win that was well deserved from the hours of practice and their constant improvement on their skills.

“We had a couple goofs, but were well recovered to win,” Abby Holden ‘19 said. “I think everyone was absolutely thrilled that we won this game.”

With a big season ahead of them, JV softball has high hopes for upcoming games. They next compete on Friday, March 24 against Cedar Ridge.
