A solid foundation in softball features offseason work at clinics and local indoor facilities (including in Mercersburg’s own Hale Field House), as well as a spring break training trip. While nearly every athlete in the lineup plays at least one other sport, a number of players compete on softball travel teams as well.

Recent graduates have gone on to compete at the collegiate level at a number of schools, including Gettysburg, Haverford, and Swarthmore. Head coach Lauren Jacobs played two varsity sports at Union College (softball and ice hockey).

The team won the 2012 PAISAA state championship, which was the first state title in the program’s history.

Mercersburg practices and competes on Spider Field, a recently renovated facility located in the center of the campus. A resurfaced infield, heated dugouts, and upgraded fencing combine with a beautifully scenic setting to make the “Field of Dreams” one of the finest high school facilities in this softball-rich area.
