On May 29, McLean Softball competed against Marshall to see who goes to States. The final score of the game was a steep 12-3 with a McLean win. The team has had a great season compared to previous years.

“The last time McSoftball had a season comparable to this,” junior first baseman Gabi Norton said. “It was in 2010 when the team won the state championship.”

A great amount of focus and practice went into preparation for the game, and a few changes in drills helped their win.

“We adjusted our drills according to the scouting reports of Marshall, which helped us prepared to go against them,” Norton said.
