As soon as the ball sailed into centerfielder Campbell Grona’s glove for the game’s final out, Tivy pitcher Kaitlyn Secor dashed into centerfield and embraced her senior teammate. Senior shortstop Marissa Medina immediately hugged third baseman Liz Twiss after the final out before meeting with Alyssa Hickman for another embrace.
Basically, everyone on the Tivy softball team took turns hugging each other after demolishing Harlandale, 10-1, on Thursday night. They cheered as they unfurled a golden banner emblazoned with the words, “District champs,” in blue lettering. After they were finished posing for photos holding the banner, they shared more embraces with each other.
