Lady Jet softball team honored Thursday night

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School Lady Jet softball team received special awards and their All-District honors during their annual awards banquet Thursday night at Forte's Restaurant.

Coaches Samantha Donathan, Rob Akin and Bo Woods presented the awards to the Lady Jet, who came within one victory of going to the region in several years. CCHS lost to Cookeville in the loser's bracket of the District 6AAA Tournament a few weeks ago at Cookeville.

Bailey Woods was the Best All-Around player for her "offense, defense, attlitude, work ethic and leadership."

The coaches shared their thoughts about each player as they received their award.

Bri Qualls won the Most Versatile award for being "able to adapt or be adapted to many different functions or activities any where in the field, i.e. pitching, shortstop or second base, dependable anywhere in the batting line-up (lead off, clean-up or wherever)," said Bo Woods

The Best Offensive Award went to Emily Terpening for "coming through with some big hits in some big game pressure situations. She moved  everywhere in the line-up, becoming the leadoff batter," said Donathan.

Erin Dille was the Best Defensive Player for "willing to lay all out to keep balls from getting by her, working hard and staying late (after practice)," added Woods.

Callie Borgialli received Most Improved Player honors. She started the season without a starting position. As the year went on, she became that "'had to have'

player on the field. She was always talking, communicating and made the Lady Jet outfield strong," noted Donathan.

Amber Johnson was the Most Coachable Player.

"She was able to always take what we said and apply it and worked hard at every practice. She was never caught goofing off and has great work ethic. Amber had diving practice, defense day with Bo," said Donathan.

Lydia Harris won the Golden Glove Award for "having very few errors. How many times Bo and I looked at each other and said 'she's solid," added Donathan.

Destiny Lewis won the Heart of a Champion Award. "The theme song for the year, I'ma give what I can and more, more heart than Hallmark on Valentine's Day. We are so proud of the attitude shown and the never give up attitude...pumping everyone up. At Cookeville, sending her out to talk to the girls," according to the coaches.

Tori Kerley won the Most RBI's Award. She moved runners around, put the ball in play and drove in the most runners all season long.

Kenzie Woods was Rookie of the Year. She was right behind Kerley with the second most RBIs and came through in a lot of need in scoring siutations. Kenzie Woods worked so hard, was always wanting to stay after practice and hit off the machine again or hey, pitch me another bucket of balls.

Whitney Hankins was the Most Outstanding Pitcher. She was a senior leader, pitched in some big games, got the team out of some big holes, worked hard, stayed later and came in for extra work.

Bri Vallecillo earned the Carpe Diem Award for "always making the most every day,  hilarious, comedic relief and could always count on her."

First-team All-District 6AAA were Bri Qualls, Whitney Hankins, Erin Dille and Bailey Woods, while second team or honorable mention were Emily Terpening, Callie Borgialli, Kenzie Woods and Lydia Harris.

Seniors Whitney Hankins and Bri Vallecillo received framed game jersies.

Jay Wood, president of the Lady Jet booster club, recognized Dylan Wood (announcer), Lawrence VanLandingham (field work) and Don Johnson (field work) for their support of the team. He presented gifts to coaches Samantha Donathon, Bo Woods and Rob Akin.

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
