Her outstanding hitting and defense led the Battle Creek Warriors deep into the Georgia High School Association state softball tournament this season. Her family joined her during the ceremony.
At Jenkins, forward Faith Sanders signed on with Northern Kentucky, a division one school just south of Cincinnati, Ohio. She plans to major in biology and tells us why she made her decision, "I chose Northern Kentucky first of all because their homecoming is during the basketball season. They don't have a football team so everything is about basketball. Actually the gym was built when my MomMom passed in 2008. I'll probably be a guard. I'm not really very tall any more. Once I get out of high school I'll be a midget."
