Catoosa commissioners recognize Heritage High School’s champion girls’ softball team
The Catoosa County commissioner’s meeting was more crowded and youthful than normal Tuesday night, Nov. 6, as the board recognized Heritage High School’s newly-crowned state champion girls’ softball team.
Head Coach Tanner Moore and numerous members of his 2018 Heritage softball team took a photo with commissioners after County Attorney Skip Patty recapped the team’s recent accomplishments.
“They are the GHSA Class 4A State champions this year,” Patty said. “They did that with a record of 25-6 and a historic 10-0 record through the playoffs, unbeaten. It’s the longest winning streak in 10 years.”
Patty says the program has had a great run not only this season, but over the last few.
“This year’s senior class’ record over the last four years is 101-36, just amazing,” Patty said.
Patty also pointed out the team’s regional pitcher of the year, Rachel Gibson, as well as three first team all-region players, and three second team all-region players.
