Deppa 2 0 1 0 With a season ending record of four wins and three losses, the Drayton girls tied with four other teams for second place in the sixteen and under Northern League Softball standings. Girls Take Second in Tournament Play The Drayton girls' softball team beat Walhalla and Valley, but came up short against Manvel in the championship game to take second in the league tournament on Sunday, July 11. Even though they tied for second in the league, by virtue of St. Thomas not attending, an unorthodox tournament bracket, and two lost coin flips, Drayton had to face the number one undefeated Walhalla team in the frst round. The girls did not let the situation get them down. The teams' positive attitude and some timely hitting helped them defeat the regular season league champs from Walhalla. A strong defensive game was also a factor in their upset win. Behind pitcher Morgan Hill, who struck out four and walking only one, the team kept the game close throughout. Although there were many excellent individual efforts defensively, the top two may have been a great catch by centerfielder, Stacey VanCamp, who ran down a long fly ball hit to the gap and an outstanding catch by third baseman, Brittany Funaiole. After scoring four runs in the first inning and with bases loaded, Walhalla looked to break the game open. With her back turned completely away from the infield, Funaiole made an over the shoulder catch at a dead run for the second out of the inning. The next batter grounded out to end the rally. In the second inning, Walhalla scored three more runs on three hits and three errors. From the third inning until the end of the game, Drayton's defense tightened and Walhalla was only able to score two more runs for a final of twelve to nine. The team was lead offensively by Grace Oberg who went three for five at the plate with a double, Laura Brosius who was two for four with two triples and Rachel Juhl who was two for four with two doubles.

The only other Class B team to challenge into the Class A ranks and win was the 1962 Drayton team. But it placed second in the state Eastern Division tourney and lost at the regional level. Drayton had a 27-5 Legion record in 1958, never losing in 10 games against Class A competition.
