With hard work and determination, the San Pedro High School (SPHS) female softball team emerged victoriously and brought home the 2019 National Secondary School Sports Association (NSSSA) Northern Softball Regionals championship. Held on Saturday, March 2nd in Orange Walk Town, SPHS was represented by both male and female teams, as they competed against the teams from Escuela Secundaria Tecnica Mexico (ESTM) and Orange Walk Technical High School (OWTHS). Other schools in the competition included Muffles College and Corozal Community College (CCC). They were all fighting for the opportunity to represent the Northern Regionals at the anticipated NSSSA National Softball Championship scheduled for March 22nd and March 23rd in Independence Village, Stann Creek District.

In the female championship match, SPHS took a good lead against OWTHS, who gave the impression that they were no match for the island girls. SPHS’ Ivana Nuñez, Aaliyah Pilgrim and Caroline Sersland upped their score near the end of the last innings. OWTHS could not make a comeback, and SPHS easily claimed the victory with a 15-2 no mercy rule in the bottom of the third inning. The SPHS softball female team will now be representing the island at the National Tournament.
