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.
