Drifters softball team secure VHSL state playoff berth

Last Tuesday, the Drifters softball teams took a giant step forward, as they defeated Middlesex 9-0, which gave the team its first VHSL State Championship playoff berth in the school’s history.

The Drifters offense was hot at the plate, as catcher, Emily Parks was 2 for 3, including 3 RBIs, and a triple. M.

Morton finished the game with two hits (single, double) during four plate appearances. On the mound, Karley Inscoe pitched a complete game that featured a near flawless one-hit performance.

On Thursday the Drifters traveled to the unfriendly confines of Sussex High School, and defeated them 9-2. The victory against number two-seed Sussex, advanced the Drifters to the Region A championship against Rappahannock. Deniya Newman finished the game with hits (single, double) during four plate appearances. Newman’s teammate, Taylor Lee was 2-4, with three RBIs. Inscoe completed the game with seven solid innings of pitching.

However, on Friday, the Drifters were shut out by Rappahannock 7-0.

Results of the Tuesday night Region A quarterfinal game versus East Rockingham were not available due to press deadlines.

Drifter varsity softball head coach Scott Foster firmly believes that the softball program is headed towards a strong future. “It’s a good way to build a program, and it’s a good way to qualify for it—because we wanted to experience it with a young team,” Scott Foster said.
