TOTW: Leo Lions Softball

LEO, Ind. (WANE) – The 2013-14 school year edition of “Team of the Week” goes out on a high note, as the Leo Lions softball team won the 3A state title back on June 14 en route to earning the final TOTW honor.
Head coach Ben Shappell flew out to Hawaii the day after clinching the title, joining the rest of his family for a vacation that was planned one year ago. He recently returned from vacation, with the hiatus causing WANE to skip a week before honoring the Lions.
The Lions topped Gibson Southern 2-0 behind a complete game shutout from junior Linsdey Bowers. Bowers allowed just four hits without issuing a walk. She struck out five batters.
It was a dream season for the Lions, who won the program’s first regional and semi-state titles on the way to state. The Lions finished 27-6 and graduate just one senior off their roster.
