A Message from the Coaches- We are so proud of the #MTHSsoftball team. Through all of the adversities this team has had to go through; from losing a season last year, living through a pandemic, injuries, volleyball season moved, and only having a 2 month season- this team has improved so much! It is aways hard to end a season, especially after playing a game like today, but the coaching staff wants all the players to know how much they enjoyed this season and how proud we are of this team!
Panther Proud 🧡🐾
🥎This weeks ATHLETE OF THE WEEK goes to senior left fielder Maverick Adams. Adams was out of the line up at the beginning of the season with a freak elbow injury during a preseason practice. Since then, Mav has worked back to the starting line up and has controlled left field tremendously!
In the past 3 games Mav is 50% at the plate, going 5 for 10 and racking up 4 RBIs in the process. Three of those RBIs came in the game against Atlantic City on May 20th, where Mav crushed the ball to centerfield for a double.
In the field Adams has had 6 total chances with 5 put outs and only one error, earning a .900 fielding percentage this week and a .923 average on the season.
Congratulations Mav! We are so proud of you! 🎉

On Wednesday afternoon, Morgan and teammate Sayde Nichols both graduated from ACCC with their associates degree. Both players came to the field after drive through graduation with 5 minutes to warm up for the game. Kern was outstanding at 1st base, keeping runners from advancing and again keeping Middle free of errors. Congrats Grads! 🎓🧡
But it doesn’t stop there! Kern has enlisted in the Army National Guard and will be leaving July 6th for basic training at Ft Jackson SC, and at AIT at Ft. Lenordwood Missouri after. This past Sunday Morgan went to training at Sea Girt drill base for an entire day. Exhausted, the next day, she came to the field early for extra reps before a big game against a tough Mainland team. Now that’s dedication!
Congratulations on all of your accomplishments Morgan. We are so proud of you and look forward to following your future successes! 🥎🐾🧡
