Mustang Softball: The Quest for Columbus


Every year, the Lady Mustangs softball team has made it to the state playoffs. However, a spot in the coveted Elite 8 tournament in Columbus, GA is what the girls have their eye on. They think they have the right stuff to make it to the tournament for the first time since 2017.

Makayla Stephens (9)

Above is freshman pitcher Makayla Stephens. She has been a major addition to the Lady Mustangs this season. So far, she has a 7-0 record. Her wins include a no-hitter and 5 shutouts. In addition, she is a beast at the plate and has 9 hits so far this season. It’s an incredible feat to have such a talented two-way player on the team.

Through the first two rounds of region play, the Lady Mustangs are 9-1. A region win over Hillgrove on 9/17 will secure the Region Championship and guarantee that the girls are a 1st seed going into State Playoffs.

This season is so important to the Lady Mustangs because they lost 5 seniors from the 2019 season. The team is very young and was not expected to go very far this season. So far, they have proved everyone wrong. Great job ladies!
