UNC softball looks back on successful season

The North Carolina softball team saw its season come to an end Saturday on a devastating walk-off homerun, but Coach Donna Papa seemed very proud of how the team stayed composed in crucial moments of the season. “The whole team, I was so proud of our team, how we competed, that’s all you can ask,” Coach Papa said after the loss Saturday. This past season for the Tar Heels came with a lot of recognition at both the local and national levels. Four members of the UNC team were given All-ACC honors this season, with junior Kristen Brown and freshman Taylor Wike leading the way on the first team.
