Gainesville Jr. High softball team
The Gainesville Junior High softball team ended its season with a 3-12 record. “With tough competition and pitchers throwing 50-plus miles per hour, our girls competed and hit fairly well, although our record doesn’t show it,” said coach Sherry Patterson. “On a positive note, we have seven new pitchers who, if they are willing to work, will contribute greatly to the Gainesville softball program.” Members of the team are, from left, (front) manager Morgan Yeary, Gwendolyn Broderick, Liv Milligan, Lauren Hillhouse, Brittney Nielsen, Sailor Anderson. Back: Jessee Lathem, Yasmine Moray, Debra Winrod, Victoria St. Pierre, Brooklyn Bushong, Jenna Uchtman, Brianna Hoffman, Hallee Donley, coach Sherry Patterson. Other team members, not pictured, are Carol Barnett, Shelby Etchoe and Kayley Swartz. Coach Patterson expressed appreciation to Johnicka Hanke, Joe Walrath and Jamie Utchman, who helped build the program.
