Though the initial outlook for the 2017 team – even among the players – was that they would compete and try to lay a foundation for the future of the program, their competitiveness landed them in the playoffs for the first time since 2015.
“The 2017 softball season was both extremely challenging and extremely rewarding,” Head Softball Coach Bryant Upshaw said. “We lost quite a few close games this year, by one or two runs, but the team remained focused and continued to demonstrate the competitive spirit that a coach hopes to see.”
The All-District Team honors individual efforts both on the field and in the classroom. Players are nominated by their coaches, then voted on by a panel of coaches from across the district.
