But to get back there, the Highlands Ladybirds softball team knows it needs to win its second-ever 9th Region crown after winning the first one two years ago. But for the regular season, the goal is to go undefeated in 36th District and region play.
So far, it's gone well. The Ladybirds (12-6 overall) remained undefeated in district and region play at 2-0 and 6-0 respectively with a convincing 8-0 win over the Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds at Veterans Park on Monday. NewCath beat Highlands at Winkler Field last year before the Ladybirds came back to beat NewCath in the district tournament championship.
