Girls win regular season championship
The Moore County Middle School Softball Team set several school records during The 2016-2017 season. The girls’ final season record of 20 wins versus only 7 losses is the best in MCMS Softball history. The team won the regular season championship with a record of 11 wins against just one loss. This too is another first in school history. MCMS plays in the Big South Conference (BSC), formerly known as Duck River Valley Conference. The girls entered the BSC tournament with the momentum of a 10 game winning streak. The tourney is typically double elimination which means teams must lose two games before going home. However, this year’s tournament was converted to single elimination as a result of rainy weather. The girls made it to the semifinals before they were defeated by the #2 seed Cascade. The loss was the only conference loss of the year. With back to back 20 win seasons this 8th grade class is the winningest class in MCMS history. The MCMS softball team is led by Head Coach Eric Hunt with Ethan and Debbie Hunt, Katie Smith serving as assistant coaches.
