For the civil discussion of high school softball
I don't follow softball real close but I do know Washington has 7 starters returning. Went by Jan Smith field and it looks FANTASTIC. And it will look even better when the championship sign is unveiled in about 3 weeks. The ladies deserve it. Maybe Duvie can pop in and give us his $20.00 preview
I read the back of the Book, You lose.

Washington- The Panthers are the reigning 3A champs, lose two starters, lost to EP twice, but beat them in regional title. Very talented and deep roster.
East Peoria- EP has won 47 Mid-Illini games in a row & are led by a great junior trio in Emert (Illinois St.), Graves (Butler) & Ferguson (undecided)
Canton- Awesome core of seniors (Shubert, Wells, Murphy, Sharpshair) are back for Bob Barnes, who will have his team playing real well down the stretch.
Limestone- Huge core of talented seniors (vonRohr, Thomson, Terrell) are back and could contend for a top-4 spot in the league.
Pekin- A big roster that includes a lot of talented and experienced seniors (Spiesz, for one), plus a true home field for Gigi MacIntosh will be huge.
Morton- Pitching will be the biggest question for the Potters & losing Chandler Ryan is big.
Metamora- An overflow of youth from last season will be looked to step up big this season, especially Sydney Litviak and Madi Vancil.
Dunlap- A big question mark comes in the circle, but the experience at other positions make the Eagles a tough out in league play.
East Peoria defeats Dunlap 9-0 to extend Mid-Illini win streak to 49. Alyssa Graves & Madi Bambrick both drive in 2 runs in the 5 run 1st. Ashley Emert & Remi Ferguson both homer. Graves pitches complete game shutout including 4 strikeouts in 1 inning.
East Peoria defeats Pekin 3-1 to extend the Mid-Illini win streak to 50. Madi Bambrick,Allie Flowers,Ashley Emert,Allie Emert,Remi Ferguson & Allyssa Graves all had key hits for East Peoria. Graves was again the winning pitcher.

Pretty amazing 52 MI game win streak for the Raiders. Will be quite awhile for someone to match / beat that.
