Durant softball state bound for the first time in nine years
DURANT, OK -- The Durant Lady Lions will head to the Class 5A fast-pitch tournament next Thursday in Shawnee. They'd do it in dominant fashion, run ruling Pryor in the regional final 11-0.
"I went to school here and I've been coached and all the teachers that taught me I still work with, so I got a little bit more tie with the community and it makes it even that much more, I guess, better," head coach Aaron Mullens said.
"It feels great to be able to lead the team and know that they're just going to keep going up from here," senior infielder Alexa Richards added.
"We have to show just how hard we have to play and if we play to the best of our ability I don't think anyone can beat us," senior outfielder Kylie Manning concluded.
