FARMINGTON HILLS — They were semifinalists two years ago.
Then in 2016, the girls on the Farmington Hills Mercy softball team put it all together and took the next step, winning the Division 1 state championship.
So, just what’s in store for the 2017 edition?
We’re about to find out.
After winning it all last spring and then going through a major roster turnover, the Marlins appear ready for another run toward East Lansing — if a lot of things fall into place, as coach Alec Lesko put it.
“We have to continue to get better in all phases of the game,” Lesko said last week. “We’re pitching better, we’re having good looks at the plate, and our defense is strong. It’s what you want at this time of the year.”
