The Navarre High School softball team banquet was held May 16. Coach Scott Murphy thanked the coaches, parents and team for their efforts, which led to a 17-7 record for the season.
“We had a very good season,” Murphy said. “A hit here or a play there barely kept us from a district championship.”
Murphy started the evening by recognizing the team’s achievements in the classroom. As a team, the Raiders were ranked 10th in the state academically. Individual academic winners from each class were freshman Christine Palmer with a 3.7 grade-point average, sophomore Jenny Watts with a 3.86 GPA, junior Jenna Bobbitt with a 3.36 GPA and senior Audrey Thomas with a 3.74 GPA.
The junior varsity players received certificates of participation and the varsity players received letters.
The team voted for winners of the following individual awards:
Outstanding Offensive Player – Jenna Bobbitt. Bobbitt collected 30 hits, including two home runs, and posted a .411 batting average.
Outstanding Defensive Player – Kamber Anderson
Pitcher of the Year – Allison “Cat” Pettigrew
Player of the Year – Brooke Murphy. Murphy batted .371 with 27 runs batted in and 26 hits.
Coach’s Award – Audrey Thomas
Seniors Thomas, Murphy and Allyson Bacon were recognized for their contribution to the Raider softball program.
