State champs: Four captains lead softball team to victory
Leading the girls varsity softball team to victory were four captains: seniors Treya Connell and Brittani Robinson and juniors Kaitlin Stark and Lori Bauer.
All the captains agreed that the root of the team's success this year had to do with how well the team got along from the beginning.
"Our team was always more than a team; we're a family," Bauer said.
Bauer began her softball career in 12U traveling softball.
