Broken Arrow fast-pitch softball is an impressive 29-4 on this year’s season, including a perfect 10-0 on the road. They are going into the playoffs as one of the favorites, currently ranked second in the state and eighth in the nation. The offense has lead them to their impressive record, scoring over 10 runs per game. Coach Randall King has prepared the girls for the tough competition in the upcoming playoffs.

“So far we have hit the ball really well all season long,” King said. “This needs to continue for us to have success in the playoffs.”

Even though they are ranked number two in the state, they still have tough competition coming up, including numbers one and four in the state, Yukon and Mustang, respectively.

“Our biggest competition will probably be Mustang or Yukon,” Raegan Edwards said.

So far this has been a winning season for the Tigers, beating multiple top 10 teams to move them up in the rankings. Broken Arrow values team chemistry and knows that a strong team atmosphere is vital to a successful playoff run.

“The best part of the season has been growing a closer relationship with each other and creating a bond that has made us stronger and very successful as a team,” McKenzie Carney said.

As the season comes to a close they have one goal in mind, a state championship.

“I hope to win a state championship at the end of the season,” Carney said.

The team will be playing in the regional tournament at home today starting at 2 p.m.
