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.
