Lady Jacket Softball: Region Champs


Mackenzie Wilborne

The Lady Jackets softball team is your reigning 2021 4A region 2 region champions. The 2022 season came around and the Lady Jackets went 11-2 on the whole season and 7-1 in the region winning the 2022 4A region 2 championship. They have started playoffs for the 2022 season and they have gone 2-1 playing Pickens and York. The Lady Jackets are traveling to York on May 11, 2022 to play for the District Championship. They must win the first game in order to be tied with York and if they win the first game, they will play another game that night. No matter the outcome of that game, the Lady Jackets have had a phenomenal season. The head softball coach Megan Rochester will not be able to attend the game because she is having her baby! The Lady Jackets want to win and play these games for her and her newborn. This year we will have 5 seniors leaving, Emma Kate Kirkpatrick, Reese White, Aaliyah Yeargin, Campbell Cox, and Sarah Styles. All seniors are planning to attend college with Aaliyah Yeargin being the only senior going to play college softball at Spartanburg Methodist College. The Lady Jackets can not wait to return for the 2023 season with a new region of Wade Hampton, Riverside, Eastside and Laurens. Lastly the Lady Jackets want to thank everyone for all of their support and the time people have put into them.
