Smithville softball looking to build on last year's successes

Smithville senior Elizabeth Palmer throws to first base during a Class 4 District 8 softball game against Platte County last season.

SMITHVILLE — With a record of 22 wins and 11 losses and 11 wins and 1 loss in conference, tying with Platte County for the conference championship, one may think Smithville softball can only keep climbing. For coach Kaily Mayhugh, that’s the plan.

“I would say our strengths are determination, grit, depth on defense, speed, power hitters, a very coachable team and our steadiness,” the second-year head coach said. “As a team, we can dominate, but as of right now, we don’t have single players that we would define as ‘dominating.’ I believe that will change.”
