It hasn't been the season Watauga High softball Stephanie Kostis envisioned. Well, at least so far it hasn't. The Pioneers (0-4 ovearll; 0-3 Northwestern 3A/4A Conference) suffered their fourth consecutive loss Wednesday night in Morganton, N.C. Freedom scored four runs in the fourth and four more in the fifth and defeated WHS 11-1 by the ten-run mercy rule.
