FAIRMONT — For East Fairmont’s softball team, this past season added to the numerous times the Bees have won a sectional title.

Head coach John Postlewait said their season was a success though because they were successful at all aspects of the game.

“We put all three phases of the game together,” he said. “Pitching, defense and hitting; we didn’t rely on one aspect. I thought we were really successful with that.”

To add to the successful season, Postlewait said the younger girls and the older girls had to mesh well in order to have a good season.

“We had a couple freshmen that saw a lot of playing time and started three sophomores,” he said. “With trying to get the younger girls to mesh with them, I think we did a good job with that this year.”

The Bees are losing three seniors next year, Kayla Summers, Ashley Martin and Jasmin Johnson. Summers’ season fell short after suffering a broken finger the Friday before sectionals.

She made a huge impact for the Bees, hitting .465 with 42 RBIs, adding seven home runs, 13 doubles, and a fielding percentage of .985.

Summers continued, however, to make a difference even though it was from the dugout.
