With a season record of 20-10, the varsity girls softball team barely slid into the playoffs with a ranking of 4 in the district. However, after beating both McKinney North and Rockwall Heath, softball has advanced through the brackets, slowly becoming a force to be reckoned with.

“I wouldn’t call it a rough season, but we came together as a team and we put all of our talent together and it just clicked,” senior AJ Carpenter said.

After beating Rockwall Heath in game one, the girls moved on to play them a second time. During the fourth inning, the team scored nine runs, creating the necessary 10-0 score to win in five innings.

“It felt good, we did good as a team and we won as a team,” sophomore Sydney Cox said. “It’s exciting.”

After moving through the next inning without allowing Rockwall Heath to score, the girls advanced to the next round of the playoffs to compete against Frisco.

“This will definitely prepare us and give us the mentality to play hard and get to the next level to beat Frisco,” sophomore Mariah Moore said. “The first game this series went really really well, we fought our hardest the second game and came out a little weak, and struggled a little bit and came back for our third game fully replenished and gave our all because there was nothing we could lose and we pulled through.”
