Suburban West 2013 all-conference softball team:
Preview capsules for softball sectional games involving area teams:
COTTLEVILLE • The number 13 proved to be very lucky for the Marquette softball team Friday.
EUREKA • Just call them giant slayers.
After winning four of the team’s first six games in 2012, the Marquette softball team limped to the finish with a 13-13 mark.
CHESTERFIELD • Even though she didn’t have much time to think about it, Marquette pinch hitter Amanda Lang came up with a quick answer to a pertinent question: With the game neck-and-neck the entire way, who was going to step up and end it?
SOUTH COUNTY • A combination of bad luck at the plate and shaky defense usually spells disaster on the diamond.
BALLWIN • Fort Zumwalt East junior pitcher Nikki Taylor was reminded Monday about one of the great things of the game of softball.
BALLWIN • Marquette sophomore shortstop Monica Weiss probably couldn't have imagined a much better start to her varsity softball career.
