A Pitcher Perfect Season


The Edwardsville Middle School softball team didn’t let COVID-19 restrictions bring them down. Their undefeated 2020 season included a really great game against Triad, beating them 7-2.

Catcher Ali Brase was able to tag a runner out when there was a hit to center field. “Making that great play, it meant a lot.”

Meanwhile, Riley Nelson contributed on offense and defense, striking out nine batters and hitting a double in the sevenrun 4th inning. Riley said that this was a “pretty big” victory for them.

Every girl on the team contributed to cap off an awesome season by winning regionals.
