Thomson softball players recognized for achievements

Kudos is being extended to several star softball players at Thomson High School.

The Lady Bulldogs completed their most successful season in school history -- finishing as the eighth best girls' softball team in Georgia Class AAA play.

And for the second year in a row, junior shortstop Hannah Wilson was named as the Region 3-AAA Player of The Year.

"I'm very proud of the accomplishments of all of these girls," said head coach Jason Osborn. "I can't say enough good things about them. They were all hardworking players. They deserve these honors. They had a great season."

Region 3-AAA coaches voted Wilson Player of The Year for the second consecutive year.

"She plays with a lot of heart," said coach Osborn.

"Hannah gives it everything she's got. We're all real proud of her."

Wilson, who has played for the Lady Bulldogs since she was a freshman, was closely watched during the playoffs by coaches from the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech. And she has received letters of interest from a multitude of college softball programs.

The Lady Bulldogs managed to fill seven of the 13 slots on the First Team All-Region list.

"I think that really says a lot about the quality of players that we had this past season," said coach Osborn. "That's really something to have that many players make first team."

Other First Team All-Region players from Thomson included: sophomore pitcher Maegan Bentley, sophomore second baseman Brooke Herkel, freshman third baseman Jadah Lawson, senior catcher Hannah Pereda, senior center fielder Heather Shivers and senior right fielder Natasha Seals.

Senior first baseman Chelsea Reeves was named to Second Team All-Region.
