Calvin High School Lady Cougars

When the 2019 softball season started, the young Calvin team dedicated themselves to 4 goals: 1. Win the District Championship, 2. Fight their way through the playoffs and make the State Championship round in Sulphur, 3. Win the semifinal game, and 4. Play for the State Championship.

Friday and Saturday, the team accomplished every preseason goal and dreamed of taking one more step: Win the State Championship.

The semifinal game on Friday was a pitcher’s duel. For six innings neither team scored. In the bottom of the 6th, Calvin’s bats delivered and they scored 3 runs. In the 7th, Harrisonburg (the 2018 State Runner up) tried to rally, but the defense held, and Madison Dupree struck out the final batter (one of 13 for the game) for the victory.
