St. Mary’s Ryken edges O’Connell for second straight WCAC softball title

St. Mary’s Ryken edges O’Connell for second straight WCAC softball title

Madie Aughinbaugh — the WCAC player of the year — retired the first nine hitters she faced en route to a complete game shutout.

By the end of Saturday's Washington Catholic Athletic Conference softball championship, Lindsay Heinze said her heart was hurting.

But thanks to Heinze's hitting, Aughinbaugh's pitching and a phenomenal defensive effort around the diamond, second-ranked St. Mary's Ryken was anything but wistful, capturing its second straight WCAC title with a 1-0 win over No. 4 O'Connell at George Mason University in Fairfax.
