MEDFORD, Ore. – Two teams, one goal.
On Saturday, North Medford baseball and softball teams both have chances to win state championships. The last time that happened was 1984, and the significance is not lost on players and coaches.
“I’ve gone to school with those guys and us for so long,” said Keisha Williams, senior softball outfielder. “And for us to reach that peak point in our careers at the same time, it’s super great.”
“I’m a Black Tornado all the way, so I’m going to wish [the softball team] the best of luck, and hopefully we can come back with two,” said baseball head coach Brett Wolfe.
“It’s kind of fun to be on campus and high five the guys as they’re walking by and hear talking about the girls and high-fiving them on their way through,” said Mike Mayben, softball head coach.
The Black Tornado baseball team faces Sheldon at 10 a.m. Saturday in Salem. The softball team will play against South Salem at 10 a.m. Saturday in Corvallis.
