Senior softball girls back on the field

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 this week. Games for seniors were played Monday and Tuesday at the Arnold Burton fields in Roanoke County and 48 girls participated, including six from Lord Botetourt and one from James River. (Below, top row – left to right) LB teammates Meredith Wells and Bre Carter were mound opponents in one game, and here they deliver pitches on Monday evening.
