They finally realized that in todays IHSAA you have to recruit to win. It seems every team in every sport that wins or goes to the finals is either a "private" school or recruited kids to compete. They are a quality team but bringing in girls to play just tarnishes the trophy.
Not so much

They don't recruit or bring in girls just to play.
They've put in place an enormous developmental system over the years.
Granted, in the process they've created a town (Montezuma) that essentially is run by a softball league, but they've been successful in the process, and no one who lives there seems to care, so I guess it works.

I totally disagree with your statement of "recruiting". These are all Girls who live in the Southwest Parke school district. So before you start making you stupid comments of recruiting...you need to get your facts straight. The reason why they won is due to the dedication of the players, the coaching staff and the supporters of our State Champion Panthers!
