Congratulations to the SHEPARD MAGNET MIDDLE SCHOOL team for winning Durham Softball’s 2019 Spring Championship!
Game 1 for Shepard today was a dramatic, extra inning, 1-run victory over #3 Crayons2Calculators: The Durham Teacher Warehouse Corporation (C2C).
Game 2 was a comeback, 1-run victory over #2 Meals on Wheels of Durham.
Finally, the team was down 2-1 going into the 6th inning of the Championship Game against #4 South Durham Little League. The team scored two in the 7th and played tight defense in the bottom half to earn the title.
Shepard was down after the 5th inning in every game today, so great job by the team for never giving up and playing hard until the end of each game. There were some close games today and really good competition.
Thanks to all the players, charities, and fans who came out to support the league this season!
