Three years later, the same two girls softball teams playing for the same high-school championship met on the same field at Episcopal School in Alexandria on May 14.
The results were the same, as well, with the Potomac School Panthers defeating the Flint Hill Huskies in a 15-0 blow to win the Independent School League AA Division crown. Three years ago the title tilt went into extra innings.
What was unique about the May 14 game, is the ISL tournament was not held the past two seasons because of the pandemic. Then, when it resumed this spring, the same two squads were still the strength of the league, as they played again in the tournament final for the third time in a row.
This year’s title game, though, was still effected by COVID in one manner. Neither head coach, Wayne Loving of Potomac School or Andy Krug of Flint Hill, was able to attend the game. Each tested positive for COVID in recent days, and as a result of conference rules, they were still under quarantine and not able to be present.
The coaches watched the game that was being streamed.
