Huge Win in Inaugural Game for MRH Softballers

The first-ever MRH Ladies softball team wins big in inaugural game.It's one thing to put together a big win on the field of athletic competition. But to do it in a team's inaugural game of its first-ever season, without home field advantage... that's an accomplishment.

Tuesday night, the Blue Devils Ladies Softball Team traveled to Jennings High School, brand-new uniforms and gear in hand, and dealt Jennings a lopsided loss. MRH 21, Jennings 2. 

The first-ever MRH Ladies softball team wins big in inaugural game.Just one year ago, MRH athletic director Amber Jordan was still pulling together her pitch to the Board of Education to fund a softball program. The list of needs included bats, balls, catcher's equipment, uniforms, field use fees (MRH has no ball field of its own), tournament fees, and of course, two coaches. Jordan's proposal topped out in the $11,000 range. 

When the board stamped its approval on the softball program, it created the sixth girls sport at MRH... the same number as is available to MRH boys. 

The Lady Blue Devils will alternate between the playing fields at Deer Creek Park and Ryan Hummert Park. You can check their schedule here.  To check schedules for all MRH sports, click here
