SALEM OH- Salem Softball was on an upswing coming into the 2020 season. Multiple records have been broken. Despite losing some key players to graduation, the Quakers have big expectations for 2020. A team led by six seniors is always one to be reckoned with. In the midst of COVID 19, that senior season is uncertain for the six senior ladies. Coach Mike Thorpe says that is what bothers him the most that his great group of seniors may not get on the field.

The virus has made the family so important, and the Quakers have a very strong family atmosphere on the softball field. Coach Thorpe is adamant that the bond he sees from his players is like no other. It will take that strong bond to get the Quakers through these uncertain times.
