Seymour Softball is off to one of its greatest starts in school history after their most recent win against Charlestown Monday night. The girls won in dominating fashion 10-3. After going down 0-3, the Owls stormed back and scored 7 runs in the third, highlighted by Kate Snook’s monster home run that broke the scoreboard. After going up 8-3 in the fourth, Carlee Robinson hit a two-run home run that put the game out of reach. The team’s only loss came at home against Brownstown Central 4-1. The Owls have been strong all season and are contending for the Hoosier Hills Conference (HHC) Championship, which the Owls have never won. They’re next game is against the 10-6 Floyd Central Highlanders, who are always in contention for the championship having won at least a stake in the championship 12 times out of the last 19 years. This will prove to be a difficult challenge for the girls, but they’ve proven throughout the year that this may not be as challenging as it may seem.
