State Champs!

Marlboro Academy wrapped up the softball season Tuesday by winning the SCISA Class AA state championship.  The Lady Dragons defeated rival Pee Dee Academy 9-0 to sweep the best-of-three series to win the title.  The Dragons were led by senior pitcher Jenna Greene who held Pee Dee to just one hit in the final game, while striking out 11 Eagle batters.  The Dragons finish the season with a 32-2 record including wins over much larger schools from across both South and North Carolina.  Above, the Dragons “dogpile” on top of head coach Boyd McLaurin after picking up the championship trophy.  For more on the Lady Dragons’ championship, see Sports, page 6.
