Although the Rockets’ regular season ended on a bit of a low note, girls softball has a future in the playoffs. Despite outhitting the Indians 11-1, a sixth inning run by Grafton broke a 1-1 tie that the Auburn bats just couldn’t get back.

The Rockets end their regular season 15-5 and will likely have a decent tournament seeding. The Auburn girls also have a significant presence on the SWCL leader board.

Yesterday’s teams were well matched, and this contest could have easily gone the other way. That would have been nice, but the final score is what it is.

On another note, both pitchers, Shannon Mortimer for Grafton and Julia Handfield for Auburn, are freshmen, so many more contests will occur on the clay.
