 Dillon Ranked 6th In AAA Softball With One Of Youngest Teams In AAA

By Billy G. Baker


Dillon—After five games of the 2019 season the HSSR 6th ranked Dillon softball Wildcats are (4-1, 1-1) and with only one senior on the team they are certainly among the state’s youngest AAA teams with awesome potential for the rest of the season.

Through March 20 the Wildcats had defeated Lake View twice, Latta, and Lake City. Their lone loss was to Aynor.

Head coach Chessie Miller is in her first season as head coach and she said it is too early to even know what the team’s strengths are. “These girls are so young, and we start one senior, no juniors, five sophomores, two freshmen and one 8th grader,” said Coach Miller. “If they were able to keep getting better and win a region title this year that would give them a lot momentum over the next two seasons.

“We are in a tough region with teams like Aynor, Cheraw and Loris playing well so we have challenges in winning the region but that is one of our goals,” said Coach Miller. “We are young, but we do have talent on this team.”

The old lady of the team is five- year performer Skyler McCoy who is batting .467 from her first base position. McCoy has signed with Queens College in Charlotte, N.C. McCoy can hit for power and she has one home run so far including two doubles and four RBI’s.

The sophomore group is led by speedy sophomore center fielder Jayla Goodwin currently batting .562 with six RBI’s. Sophomore second baseman Abby Bristow is a solid defensive performer and she is batting .438. Sophomore right fielder Ny Wilson is batting .400 with six RBI’s and two stolen bases. Qy Wilson is hitting .312 with six RBI’s and two stolen bases. Sophomore second baseman Lexii Rogers has six RBI’s .

In the freshman class pitcher/third baseman Monazia Sowells is batting .562. She is the team’s top pitcher in the circle and she is 3-1 with 13 K’s and an ERA of 1.21. Freshman Jenascia Lester plays third base and leads the team in stolen bases with six. Freshman Charlotte Sellers has made the most of her 8 at bats this season collecting four hits for a .500 average. She also has one pitching win to her credit against Lake City.

Logan Grice can be counted among the best 8th grade catchers defensively in the state of South Carolina. “She has already thrown three base runners out stealing and she has a good pop time and a strong arm,” said Coach Miller. “She is still developing her hitting skills but she is an excellent defensive catcher.”

Coach Miller continues to say the strength of the team is their speed. “We run really well, and we have a lot of team speed for sure,” said Coach Miller. “We are fast out in the field as well as when we run bases. Having good team speed helps you in many ways.”

The team will not participate in a Spring break tournament.

The Wildcats will play games between March 25-29 against Cheraw, Lake City and Marion.

Coach Miller is assisted by Stevie Grice and Tommy Moody.
