“I really like the coaching staff and the team,” Ms. Davis told ENEWSPF.

The first pitch for Jasmine Venson’s senior softball season will be in the spring.

November is typically the season when college-bound athletes commit.

Regarding its athletics program, the school says, “Many of our student-athletes go on to compete at the collegiate and even professional level. More importantly, our student-athletes graduate with lifelong friendships and a stronger character.”

“We hold our student-athletes to the highest expectations. We require them to demonstrate integrity, sportsmanship, and camaraderie; and, in addition to teaching them the skills of the game, we instill in our student-athletes life skills that they can bring to college and beyond.”
