The National Press Club's softball team did it again!

The Club's softballers capped their regular season in the Metropolitan Media Softball League by winning their second consecutive Layhill Division title, and third in four years.

The coed team will be the sixth seed when it takes its seven-game winning streak into the playoffs, which begin Saturday, July 14. The team's first opponent will be Comcast Sports Net.

Prior to that, the team will send Mike Young and Sarahanne Driggs to the MMSL's first-ever all-star game. The game, to be played Saturday, July 7 at Layhill Park in Aspen Hill, Md., includes a cookout for other players in the league. Club members Jon Salant and Ken Giglio will serve as coaches for one of the teams.
