“Jennah had a great season this year hitting and pitching,” Coach Hank Johnson said. “She helped lead us back to sectionals. She puts in a lot of work in the offseason for softball to make these things happen and it’s great to see her work pay off. We, as a program, look forward to seeing where she can help lead us in the future with two years remaining.”
