Undefeated, Rails take Metro Crown Accomplishing something never done before in Metro history, the girls ' softball team went undefeated through the Metro season. Although they finished second in the state tournament in 1980 and continued to play in championship form, the season ended short when they did not gain a spot in state tourney action. Even though they defeated East three times in the regular season, the Rails fell to the Scarlets in dis- trict play. Pitcher Mary Thompson said, " It ' s really hard playing a team four times. By the third or fourth time they are bound to catch on to the pitcher ' s style. " Thompson blazed through the season with her new-found drop ball boosting her season record to an outstanding 27 wins and 4 losses, 28-5 overall. Leading the team in hitting were Karen Turk, Mary Thompson, and Liz Frome, with averages of .357, .340, and .330 respectively. Post season honors went to Liz Frome, Tammy Rice, Sue Smith, Mary Thompson, and Karen Turk, each of whom were chosen for first team All Metro. Ronda Chia received second team All Metro, and honorable mention went to Vicki Knight, and Tanya Warren.
