Senior softball players return to the diamond for special games

By Sports editor Brian Hoffman

Softball players from the Class of 2020 lost their spring season due to the coronavirus pandemic, but had an opportunity to get back on the field last week. Games for seniors were played Monday and Tuesday at the Arnold Burton fields in Salem and 48 girls participated, including three from William Byrd High School.
