This year, the Lady Lions softball team hopes to make an appearance at the state tournament this season. Last year, the Lady Lions made it the first round of sectionals before falling short to the Massac Patriots who placed third at state last year. Last season, the Lady Lions also took the title of conference and regional champs. Sophomore Madalyn Rosenbery says, “I think we can make it far into the postseason, if everyone has the right mindset and determination anything is possible, especially with the season we had last year.”

 Because of the successful season they had last year, the Lady Lions had several people talking about their season, because the team was so young many people were surprised at how far they made it. Junior Avi Tomas says, “I think it would be a lot of fun to make it far into the postseason, when we did for basketball it was really cool to see the support from the school and our town.” 

The girls have bigger goals than just wanting to make a run into postseason,  because they want to leave a legacy, and they want people to remember them for the way they play. Junior Hunter Noto says “I want people to remember the way I play rather than the wins and losses.”

So far the Lions are 17-2 falling short to Belleville East and Plainview Alabama. They also won their conference going 6-0. The Lions are now ranked second in state after beating the number two ranked Tolono Unity.
