Woodward Academy’s varsity softball team captured their first region title in over 15 years this season as the War Eagles finished a perfect 12-0 in region play.
The War Eagles faced an uphill battle in the first round of the AAAAA State Playoffs, as Woodward’s region was aligned with Region 2-AAAAA. Region 2 featured as many as three teams in the top 10 in AAAAA, including Woodward’s first round opponent Northside-Columbus. The Patriots, once ranked as high as #4 in AAAAA, eliminated the War Eagles two games to none in the best two out of three format. Woodward’s softball squad featured an underclass-heavy roster with just two seniors. Woodward Academy will enter the 2021-22 season as the favorite to win another region title and make a deeper run in the AAAAA playoffs.
