Navy Wins 9th Annual Veterans Memorial Softball Classic Title | Local Sports

When invitations were sent out to All-State players to attend the 9th Annual Veterans Memorial Softball Classic, Camden Susott was not on the list of recipients.

Susott, a standout pitcher with Huntley Project, joined Billings West after her sophomore year but did not receive All-State honors last season after helping the Golden Bears earn a second-place finish in the State Class AA tournament .

But Susott received a late invite after another player dropped out and didn’t pass up the opportunity. She had one of the biggest wins of the tournament in Saturday’s championship game, when she helped Navy recover from a 10-run deficit and defeat Army 18-14 in a wild final at the Belgrade softball complex.
