SKIPPERVILLE, Ala. (WDHN) — G.W. Long softball took home the championship trophy this weekend at the Dothan Diamond Classic.

The Rebels are ranked third in Class 2A.

The team’s lone senior, Morgan Ferguson, earned some personal accolades last weekend.

Ferguson was named MVP of the tournament and All-Tournament Pitcher.

Ferguson says she is proud her hard work has paid off and thinks her experience contributes to her leadership skills.

“I feel like my composure really plays a big part in keeping the team calm in big situations and kind of helping them out, telling them what to do in what situations,” Ferguson said.

She was on her school’s 2018 and 2019 state championship teams and hopes the Rebels can make another run at the title this year.
