South Point softball senior stars

By Charlotte Sautner

This is the the third in our series of articles highlighting the seniors on our spring sports teams is about the two seniors on our softball team: Lexy Henson and Abby Pearson.

Coach Leah Brooks writes:  Lexy Henson has always been a tremendous versatile player.  Any position I moved her to she would go to without hesitation.  She was a leader that any of the girls could come to with questions. At every practice and game you would know that she left everything on the field.  Lexy plans to continue her education at Appalachian State University in the fall.

Abby Pearson is the type of player that played hard for her team and was always a vocal leader.  It didn’t matter if we were losing or winning, she would always give the team positive feedback and always encouraged everyone to not give up, but keep working harder.  Abby made sure if she wasn’t doing something right, she would work harder to fix it. 

Both of these seniors left a wonderful mark on our programs and led by example.  They showed the underclassmen what the true meaning of being s South Point High School softball player means.  They will be greatly missed!

Team highlighted next week: Men’s tennis.
