New Lady Highlanders Softball Team Starts Season with a Huge Win

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

After a hiatus of several years, Heathwood has a softball team again—and if their inaugural game was anything to go by, they’re going to be a force to be reckoned with.

The Middle School Lady Highlanders are currently playing in a local league rather than in interscholastic competition. But plans are in the works for them to officially compete for the school in the future. In the meantime, under the tutelage of coaches Rob Bauer and Jim McMahon, they cruised to an 18-3 victory in their first game of the season, winning 18-3. All the girls made strong contributions to the win, and 6th grader Leah McMahon’s grand slam home run was a highlight of the evening.

Team members include:

Annie Benoit

Sophia Connor

Chacey Cox

Anna Cooper

Charlotte Gonzales

AnneKatherine Johnson

Jasmine Jones

Riley Livingston
