Although the season did not end how the team wanted it to end, the season was a huge success. The Patriot softball team finished the season 22-7 overall and a runner up finish in the Division I state finals, the state’s highest classification. Our 2A enrollment numbers went up against some of the state’s largest schools and not only competed well, but came withing a hair of winning yet another state title. Nothing to hang their heads about. The Patriots were able to defeat the Mount Carmel Cubs 8-6 in the semi-finals, avenging two regular season losses to the Cubs. The win propelled the Patriots into the state title game against Dominican. Dominican, coincidentally, also defeated the Patriots twice in the regular season. The Patriots could not pull the upset in the game, though, and fell 5-3 in the title game.
We are extremely proud of our team for the way they competed and conducted themselves throughout the season and state tournament. We are so proud of our seniors, as well; Rayven Sandras, Cameron Goodman, Brianna Neal, Victoria Langford and team manager Alyssa Bradley. Each of these young ladies represented what a Champion for Life is both on and off the field and those qualities will propel them into the next chapter in their life. Thank you to the coaches, players, fans, alumni, family and friends for their support of John Curtis Christian School softball throughout the entire season!
