Maplewood Richmond Heights Youth Sports coach, Jason Watkins, reported that two MRH Youth Sports softball teams finished in first place this year in the Webster Groves baseball/softball league.
The fifth-grade team won their third straight championship, going undefeated this year with 14 wins, no loses and one tie.
Our combination fifth-, sixth- and seventh-grade team finished in first place for the second year in a row, finishing their season with 11 wins, two loses, and one tie.
Six MRH girls participated in the Webster Groves Softball Showcase Game on Saturday. The event celebrates softball in the area. Each team in the league selects three girls — selected by the players — to represent them. The players are selected on hustle, sportsmanship, improvement, enthusiasm and skill.
MRH has had a growing interest in softball the last few years, Watkins says, also that a lot of parents would like to see MRH offer softball at the high school level. The MRH Showcase participants, below.
