The girls’ varsity softball team took a hard 15-3 hit against Lee on senior night. Still, the game had great highlights and plays from the Lady Raiders.

The team and coaches MK Jennings and Danielle Spence honored their seven seniors: Nadine Abusbitan, Katherine Ackley, Shi-Anne Campbell, Nagaen Fazli, Iman Ghousheh and Mahnoor Khurshid.

The Robert E. Lee Lancers took an early lead with two runs in the first inning. Still, the team held on with strong pitching from Campbell and a putout by sophomore Isabelle Nadler.

Junior Isabel Bruns gave the team its first run; soon followed by a second run from Abusbitan. Although the Raiders were able to secure a third run, the Lancers ultimately sealed a victory.

While it was a tough loss, the team and its seniors have hope for the future. “My team is like a family to me. I hope in the future they can continue their success,” Abusbitan said.
