Center Grove’s softball team won 27 games last season, along with county and Metropolitan Conference titles. But the Trojans and their coach, Russ Milligan, want to avoid the abrupt ending they experienced despite that success.
The Trojans finished 27-2, but one of those losses came in the sectional to Franklin Central. Milligan acknowledges the Flashes, along with county rival Greenwood, figure to provide formidable obstacles to a deep state tournament run once again.
“These kids are pretty upset at the way our world has worked for the last two sectionals in a row,” Milligan said. “Greenwood and Franklin Central are great teams capable of beating anyone at any time.”
