MANTACHIE, Miss. (WTVA) -- The Mustangs were in the state championship four years ago but lost. They're looking to flip the script this year in Starkville.
"I saw these seniors go through it and I kind of wanted to give that experience again," freshman Ramsey Montgomery said.
The last time Mantachie softball made it to the state final, Montgomery was in 5th grade.
This year's seniors, like Lynsey Barber and Madison Jones, were 8th graders. Their Mustang careers have come full circle.
"Well the first year we went to state, I was young and I didn't really get to experience playing," Jones said. "But this year I get to be a part of it; it's a whole new thing for me."
For Montgomery, her mom is the coach of the Mustangs, and her older sister Mckinley was a senior on that Mustang squad which came up short.
Ramsey was a manager on the team back then. This year, she'll enter this state title game as one of the most dominant starting pitchers in the state.
"My mom and all her coaches worked so hard and they put a lot into this program," Montgomery said. "So to give back to them and give them a state championship and a ring would mean the world to me."
The Mustangs will face off against the Lake Hornets at Mississippi State Wednesday at 4 p.m.
