Jefferson diamond duo named Players of the Week
For Jefferson, it’s been one heck of a season on the diamond that has resulted in a 19-5 overall record and a fantastic 11-1 Region 8-AAA record, leading to a regular season region championship. Two key components of Kacie Bostwick’s team have been senior Samantha Vinson and sophomore Abby Beatty. Both are named BLITZ Players of the Week for their efforts.
Samantha Vinson, a Georgia College and State University commit, is an ultimate competitor for the Lady Dragons and a senior leader. The star catcher has hit to the tune of a .429 average this season, including four homeruns and 14 RBI, and reaches base on a .522 clip.
Abby Beatty has also been a key cog in the Jefferson machine, and the sophomore has emerged as a playmaker in 2018.
The center fielder is batting .447 on the season with one homer, 15 RBI, and has an insane .567 OBP. The speedster collected a walk-off, inside-the-park homerun in extra innings against Jackson County to lift Jefferson to the win.
