Softball star to play for Univeristy of Georgia

After narrowing the field down to three major college softball programs this year, Thomson High School's Hannah Wilson has now decided on the University of Georgia.

"I'm very pleased that she has made her mind up about where she wants to play collegiate softball," said Thomson softball head coach Jason Osborn. "As coaches, we're very pleased that we have a player of her caliber on our team."

Wilson has said that she would someday like to play college softball.

She once said it would be like a dream come true.

For the past two years, Wilson has been the Lady Bulldogs' starting shortstop. She will anchor that position during her senior season.

Wilson was named the 2008 and 2009 Region 3-AAA Player of the Year -- a feat never before accomplished by a softball player at Thomson High School. She has earned several other honors, including being named to the First Team All-Region the past two years.

"Hannah is a very talented player, because she works real hard at being the best she can be," the coach said.

Wilson recently announced her intentions to play at Georgia, her father, Wayne Wilson, told the newspaper.

"I think she's made up her mind," said Wilson, a Thomson businessman. "I support her in that decision."

Wilson had been courted by the Georgia Tech, Alabama, North Georgia and Tennessee Tech softball programs.
