Senior night is scheduled to be on May 8, where the girls will play a home game against Lower Moreland. The team consists of 7 seniors, along with Bella Devito as team manager. So far this season, Natalie Borys has pitched numerous strikes, allowing the Lady Lions to have an advantage over other teams. Sam Renson has hit 3 inside the park homeruns. Shaelyn Parker has a batting average of .429 after successfully bunting for base hits. Cameron Wallace has worked behind the base as catcher, blocking balls to help defend during games.
 Currently, the team is 6-4, falling to Dock, Bristol, Faith Christian, and Calvary Christian, while winning against Lower Moreland, Delaware County Christian, Morrisville, The Christian Academy, Philmont Christian, and Plumstead Christian. The team still has three more weeks until they play their final conference game on May 16.
 During the team’s senior night, everyone from the team and most of everyone’s parents show up to see the seniors the team will be sending off this year. Just before the game is about to begin, each team lines up along the foul lines on each side. The senior’s parents will also be invited out onto the field where Coach Marchok will call each of the senior’s names to give them a handshake and a flower, which is bought by their teammates. After each senior has been called, the game begins. After the game is finished, the entire team gathers around behind the dugout to enjoy great food and listen to speeches, which are created by their teammates. The rest of the team wanted to say thank you to all of the seniors on the team and it is going to be extremely hard without them next year. Come out and support the seniors on May 8th!
