Same script, different year.
In 2017, the Richlands softball team made to the state championship game and lost.
This year, the Blue Tornado suffered the same fate, this time at the hands of the Page County Panthers.
The Panthers scored two of their runs in the fourth inning, and another in the fifth. Richlands never scored. The final score was Page County 3, Richlands 0.
However, Richlands has a bright future ahead of them. All nine of their key players will be returning in 2019, so they will have their sights set on winning the big game next year.
