Urbana softball's victory bittersweet for one
Forgive Urbana High softball coach Frank Husson for being a little conflicted about his team's biggest win of the season, a 1-0 victory against No. 1 seed Damascus in a 3A West semifinal on May 16.
Urbana pitcher Alexa Murphy — who allowed two hits, two walks and struck out nine — was brilliant, but so was Damascus' Stefanie Ray, who struck out eight and allowed five hits and one walk. Husson has coached both.
"This was a tough one for me," Husson said.
