In an effort to celebrate the 2018 Mexico varsity softball Class 3 state championship, which this team won on Oct. 27 by defeating Oak Grove 5-0 on Oct. 27 in Springfield at the Killian Sports Complex, it's worth taking a look at the team records this group set in 2018.

It's also worth examining all the records this program has in full in order to fully understand what these accomplishments mean when compared to what athletes and teams from times past have been able to complete, as well as what they haven't.
