The Penns Grove softball team is a puzzle. Ask Kingsway and Pennsville.

Below .500 at the cutoff date for entering the playoffs, No. 10-seeded Penns Grove eliminated No. 3 Pennsville from the NJSIAA tournament on May 31, 6-5. Which means that the Red Devils, with a 7-12 record, plays No. 5 Gloucester City for the South Group 1 championship on June 3.

Penns Grove was the team that handed then No. 1-ranked Kingsway a 4-1 defeat early in the season.
