Lions heading to state

Moore seeks third fastpitch title in program’s history

(Continued)

MOORE —

Moore has not won a state championship in fastpitch since 2007. Even though they’ve had some solid clubs since then, they have not been able to break though to claim the program’s third title.

But Riley says this club is different. With the pitching of Lynn and the timely hitting of Caiti Hall, Hannah Lynch, Halle Melone and Qiana Harrison, she thinks it can go all the way.

“They have the possibility of winning state this year and I believe they have the heart and passion for the game to get it done,” Riley said. “The team works very well together and they are supportive of each other. There is a sense of accountability with this group. The senior class has great leadership and they are well respected by the underclassmen. If there are any aspects of the game that needs to be tweaked, the seniors generally get it done before the coaches have the opportunity.”
