FLORENCE — After a runner-up finish in 2019, and a canceled 2020 season, last year the Florence Falcons won it all at the State B-C softball tournament on their home field.
And this year, the Falcons are once again off to a hot start, and they’re led by four seniors who have been pillars of the program during their time at Florence-Carlton High School.
The Falcons have won 11 State B-C softball titles since 2000, but last year was one of the sweetest after the COVID-19 canceled 2020 season, and the Florence players took full advantage of getting back out on the diamond.
“I think it was very wholesome,” senior centerfielder Jaidyn Larson said. “It was tough for some of us girls who have been playing softball our whole lives and we weren’t able to have a sophomore season with those seniors that we wanted to have it with and so getting it our junior year and winning state was definitely a big deal for us.”
