Varsity softball is two games into their season at 1-1. The girls won their first game against Princess Anne 1-0 and lost their second game to top ranked Kempsville Chiefs 7-1.

“This team this year has a ton of potential, and we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface on the team that we can become,” said assistant coach Mike Pollock.

The girls are led by senior captains Samantha Grimsley, Hailey Sauvageau-Shlaffer, and junior Emily Demartino. They are currently unranked but are stacked with potential and have confidence in their future.

“Once the team starts to trust each other, we’re going to be a team to be reckoned with in our region,” said Pollock.
