A standard has been set within the Spain Park High School softball program.

They have won the area championship each of the last five years and have won at least 40 games the last four of those years.

The outgoing senior class had a great deal to do with raising the bar for the program even higher than it already was. 

Maddie Majors, Caroline Wooley, Caroline Kendrick, Kate Campbell and Bailey Bowers were part of a program that advanced to the state tournament all four years of their high school careers, finishing second (twice), third and fifth overall in the Class 7A tournament.

“It’s just a remarkable group of young ladies that are going to be greatly missed,” said Spain Park head coach C.J. Urse Hawkins, who recently completed her 12th season with the Jags. 

Some of that group got playing time with the varsity team as early as seventh grade, meaning the group has been a part of 253 wins over the last six seasons. A few of them will continue to play in college as well, with Majors heading to Auburn and Kendrick going to play at Hofstra University in New York. Wooley has accepted an offer to play at Gulf Coast Community College.
