Michaela Russell proved a key component for the Lady Blazes, who spent the season gradually improving.
Westbrook shorstop Justin Coppeta lines himself up to grab an incoming ball.
Nyagoa Bayak takes a stab at the High Jump at States. Bayak ultimately won the event. (She won it again at New Englands and finished second at Nationals.)
Ryan Shackley has been a key contributor for the Blazes for four years now; the team will sorely miss him in 2019.
