My Students

Our Softball program competes in one of if not the hardest Conference schedules in the state of South Carolina, especially in the smallest classification.

We are the only "A" classified school in our school district with the next smallest being "AAA".

Our student-athletes needs are not always met or provided for as well as the larger schools in our district. Despite our small size and limited support they managed to finish the season as one of the last 8 Softball teams in the State Championship Tournament.

Our athletes have the ability to make it to the next level. They just need someone to help them attain the proper exposure to help them take the step to possibly competing on the next level.

My Project

We are the only program in the county that does not have a covered batting cage to protect us from rain-outs at practice. The tamp and pump will help us to dry our field and repair it after rainy days so that we do not lose a day of practice.

Just because we are not a big time program, doesn't mean that our kids can't receive big time treatment.

The total control balls that are listed are very expensive and hard for a program our size to purchase. These are very beneficial as they offer instant feedback to the athletes.
