Marianna High recognizes its softball team

The Marianna High School Lady Bulldogs had a very successful year, won their district and finished 21-7 on the year.  What a way to send the seniors off after their dedication to MHS softball.  Last Tuesday night, the varsity and junior varsity teams, along with coaches, parents, and supporters gathered at Eastside Baptist Church.  Florida Public Utilities provided a delicious meal of grilled chicken, baked potatoes, green beans, and rolls with the parents providing the desserts on the night.  

Coach Scott Wiggins welcomed everyone and thanked the players, parents and administration for their support throughout the season.  

Junior Varsity players were recognized individually before handing out awards.  Taking home the Offensive Player of the Year was Brayden Williams.  Defensive Player of the Year went to Graci Jerkins with Anni Beebe taking home the Pitcher of the Year Award. The Bulldog of the Year went to Emili Noble.

 The Varsity was next recognized by Wiggins individually before awards were presented.  The Defensive Player of the Year Award went to Kennedy Harris with the Bulldog Award bringing a tie between Deana Holland and Josalynne Giles.  Bringing home the bacon, cooking it up, and serving it was Chloe Temples.  Temples took home Offensive Player of the Year, Pitcher of the Year, and Player of the Year was Chloe Temples.  

The softball team had a special award this year that was not intended for a player.  This award went to a man who has given tirelessly of his time raising funds for the team for needed equipment, the finishing of their batting cage, travel, meals, and whatever else he thought the team needed.  He spent countless hours raising funds, allowing the team time on the practice and playing field.  This year Jim Williams was Marianna High School softball’s SUPER BULLDOG!  The Times sends a huge congratulations to Jim Williams for going above and beyond for the Lady Bulldogs.
