The relief was plainly evident in Lambert softball coach Brooks Youngblood’s face. Youngblood, in his first season as head coach of the Lady Longhorns after serving as an assistant on last year’s 30-5 Region 6-AAAAAA championship team, had just watched his young team wrap up a second consecutive region title with a 6-3 win over Northview on Tuesday. Lambert (23-2, 16-1 Region 6-AAAAAA) celebrated modestly before moving on to Senior Night festivities that honored the Lady Longhorns’ three seniors — Savannah Huffstetler, Macy Stovall and Audrey Merrill.
