The season was a gradual progression of improvement throughout the year highlighted by a huge win on Senior Day against Lincoln Southeast as well as a Runner Up finish in Districts. Morgan Essman tied a State Record for doubles in a game with 4 and until the District Tournament Lyndsey Crist was tied for the Record of Home Runs in a season with 15. Lyndsey Crist set a school record for Home Runs in a season with 15 as well as Home Runs in a Career with 20. We started all 5 of our freshmen at one point in time or another, often all together.
