TROY, N.Y. – The Troy High School softball team captured their second straight sectional title without a single senior on their 15-player roster.
The Flying Horses coach George Rafferty said the team gets their leaderships from their trio of junior captains and surprisingly their freshman pitcher Hunter Levesque. Levesque helped the team win their first state tournament game last season as an eighth grader.
The girls said they learned a lot from their loss in last year’s state semifinals and will rely on the pain of last year’s loss to get them further this year.
The team will take on Section 7 champion Peru in the regional round Thursday at 2:30 p.m. at SUNY Plattsburgh.
