(3-28-20) One year ago today it was the start of the 2019 season…it started out with a bang when Madison Sophomore softball pitcher Alyssa Lavdis struck out 26 in 12 innings in a 2-1 win over Mentor Lake Catholic on 3-28-19.

Is that the all-time record? No…that happened in a 2010 game in 24 innings when Duncan Falls Philo’s Haley Flynn, a Sophomore at the time, struck out 55 hitters in a 5-4 win over Sheridan.
