After advancing to the Louisiana Fast Pitch 56 Tournament last year for the first time ever, Monterey's Lady Wolves will not be satisfied with anything less this season.
"That's what we are shooting for," said Monterey softball coach Hazel Brallier. "We should be strong again this year. We'll be playing a lot of teams who also made the playoffs. We've got some tough competition. But I'm optimistic."
District 4B foe Oak Hill captured the state championship, beating Holden 2-0. Holden beat Avoyelles Charter, also a member of District 4B in the semifinals.
The Lady Wolves, who beat Oak Hill 11-3 during the regular season, finished second in District 6B behind the state champion.
