When a game goes bad, it’s easy for players to lose their cool, but that hasn’t been the case for the McNary High School varsity softball team.

As an example, McNary’s Kinsey McNaught offers up last week’s contest with Sprague High School, April 10, and the reaction on the field to the Olys’ three-run homer in the third inning.

“You couldn’t see (the effect) on any of our faces,” McNaught said. “We’re really good at keeping our composure.”

Celt Dani Saunders said the incident was indicative of the team’s “calm ferocity.”

“We don’t get too excited or overwhelmed,” Saunders said.

McNary engaged in a see-saw battle with Sprague that had the teams tied 8-8 in the eighth inning when Celt Jordyn Hanson hit a double driving in McNaught for the game-winning run.
