Summertown’s Claire Woods has been named Middle Tennessee Class A Miss Softball by the Tennessee Softballl Coaches Association, and she and teammate Hailey Jones will represent the Lady Eagles in the TSCA All-Star Game scheduled for June 17 at Riverdale High School in Murfreesboro.
The duo led Summertown to a 3-0 victory over Eagleville in the state tournament finals on May 28, marking the program’s second Class A championship in four years along with a runner-up finish.
Woods, a Middle Tennessee State signee, went 21-1 with 16 shutouts, striking out 197 in 126 innings and compiling an earned run average of 0.67 in the circle. She also batted .410 with seven home runs and 32 RBIs.
Jones, who has signed with North Alabama, hit .402 with 12 homers and 39 RBIs.
Joining them on the Midstate all-star squad are Jenna Blanton and Ashley Milligan from the Class AA state titlist Forrest Lady Rockets, and Keri Munn and Justus Turner from the Class AAA runner-up Coffee County Lady Raiders.
Munn was named Class AAA Miss Softball for Middle Tennessee by the coaches association.
