Well dreams do come true, as the left-hander, power hitting, backstop officially signed her NCAA National Letter of Intent to play for the Lady Vols on November 12th, in a ceremony held in the school’s cafeteria.

Dickson, TN – Clarksville High School’s softball team saw last year’s first ever trip to the state tournament end at the hands of then District 10-AAA member Dickson County High School in the tournament’s semi-final contest.
This year Dickson County (41-7) is no longer in District 10-AAA, having moved over into District 11-AAA, but the Lady Cougars still ended the Lady Wildcats season again – this time in the TSSAA Sectional Round on May 16th – with a 5-1 final.
Clarksville High (33-16) was hurt by a slumbering offense, that was shutout for the second straight game after only suffering four shutouts in the regular season, and a couple of miscues in the field that led to three of the five runs being scored by Dickson County being unearned.
Clarksville, TN – For the third time in three days, the Clarksville High Lady Wildcats and the Northeast Lady Eagles faced off.

The Lady Wildcats held off a late rally by the Lady Eagles to win the final District 10-AAA Tournament Championship game, 8-6.

Clarksville, TN – Clarksville High School’s softball team hit four home runs in the final two innings, March 24th, versus Northwest High School to break a 3-3 tie and pull away for a 14-3 District 10-AAA victory.
After having played even for the first three innings, it looked like Clarksville High (11-6, 3-0 District 10-AAA) would miss out on adding to its lead in the top of the fourth, as Northwest got the first two batters out quickly, but saw Heather Norris keep the inning alive with a double.
