The Highland softball team ended the season at 11-5 in Superconference play, good for third place.  A good chunk of that success came on the basepath.

The Huskies dominated the Superconference in stolen bases, finishing with 70 in conference play; 24 more than the second-place team in Lone Tree, and 44 more than the now-state champs Louisa-Muscatine.

Three of the top five individual base-stealers in the conference throughout league play were Huskies as well. Emily Yahnke, a first-team all-conference selection, came in second with 13, and senior Murphy Beinhart and junior and all-stater Aly Stokes tied for fourth with 10.
