“I love softball and being out on the field with my team, which is my favorite part of being on the team,” said Clemmer.

After earning the win over Waynesboro, the ‘Cats are now 8-3 for their season so far 10-6.

“The girls are doing really good, and I feel like we are progressing just like we need to,” said Coach Karen Clemmer.

Although losing a majority of seniors last year, this year’s team is adding new talent, along with returning players. The team’s captains include seniors Emily Agnor, Katie Baker, Lyla Chittum, Paige Clark, and Bryanna Davis. The team also has four juniors, one sophomore, and two freshmen.

“Our captains always keep the team focused and ready to play,” said Jaydyn Clemmer. “Being on varsity is much more competitive than JV.”
