The first playoff run in school history is over for the softball team after back-to-back losses to the Wakeland Wolverines, 15-0 on Thursday and 11-0 on Friday.

“Words can’t describe how proud I am of each and every one of these amazing young ladies,” head coach Baylea Higgs said. “[They] did things that no one expected [them] to do, exceeded expectations, and worked so hard.”

For sophomore Delila Bond, the Redhawks being in the playoffs against such stiff competition shows how much progress they have made.

“I think we did a very good job as a team and have improved a lot since the beginning of the year,” Bond said.
