Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the Thomas Jefferson softball team.
"The season is young and her team is young, Thomas Jefferson softball coach Heidi Karcher is quick to remind anyone who inquires about her Jaguars.
It is hard to ignore, however, the vast improvement in results in the Jaguars, now in their second year under Karcher.
After finishing 3-12 overall and in last place in Class AAA Section 3 last spring, Thomas Jefferson (7-3, 3-3) started this season with six wins, including a pair of section wins against Yough and Belle Vernon Area.
After the strong start, however, TJ ran into some rocky times, losing three of four. But overall, the needle is pointing up."
