The Arlington Eagles girls softball team played their last game of the season against the Everett Seagulls on May 9.

The Seagulls got out to a hot start as they scored seven runs in the first inning. Everett scored two runs in the second and kept the Eagles scoreless through the third inning. In the fourth, the Eagles showed a little life as they scored two runs, but it wasn't enough to spark a comeback. In the end the Seagulls walked away with the 11-3 victory.

"It's just about kids getting better at softball. You have to progress, get better, work hard, have fun and just always look to the next season to take something and build. We have some work to do and hopefully we can get the girls together to keep practicing and playing in the offseason," said Arlington Assistant Coach Ashleigh Beard.

Tia Langley takes a swing at a quick pitch in the third inning for Arlington at Everett High School on May 9.

Jaea Davidson had a great offensive day as she went 2-for-3 at the plate while adding one RBI and a double late in the game. Kali Klein also contributed on the scoreboard, going 1-for-2 at the plate, with a run and a stolen base.

This game was not only the last regular season game for the Eagles, it was also the last game coached by Dan Eng. After 45 years of playing, training and coaching softball, as well as 11 years coaching at Arlington High School, he has decided to step down and retire.

"It's all about them. My reward is watching them grow, and I always tell them it's a short four years, but they don't believe me until they go through it. I get to watch them grow, go into a profession and for the ones that make it to the next level, I get to watch them on TV. It's my reward to coach these incredible young ladies. What more can a coach ask for," said Arlington Head Coach Dan Eng, on what coaching at Arlington has meant to him.
