Do your part to help slow the spread of COVID including avoiding crowds, washing your hands and wearing a mask when in public.

Varsity Game Scorecasts

Use the link below to see the iScore game information, replay, etc from all JM Softball varsity contests.  Generally the scorecast will only be available after the game has completed versus live scoring due to lack of internet connection from the venues.  But if we have a live connection you will be able to see live game scoring.
