Johnson County has become a hotbed for high school softball in recent years.
Center Grove, winner of five state titles, is a traditional state power. Greenwood served notice last year that it has a program to be reckoned with, becoming the first school other than the Trojans to win the Johnson County Tournament. Edinburgh has won three sectional titles during the past four seasons, reaching the Class A final four in 2011.
And then there is the Class 4A sectional Center Grove hosts each May. The Trojans, Franklin, Greenwood and Whiteland tangle with Franklin Central and New Palestine in what Grizzly Cubs coach Joe Paszek calls the toughest sectional in the state.
