New­ton County’s elite

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

Three lo­cal stand­outs, se­nior Aubree Thacker ( Al­covy), East­side ju­niors McKensi “Taz” Pow­ell and Catlin Ray were selected to the 2014 GADC Elite 80 by the Ge­or­gia Dugout Club coaches as Ge­or­gia Elite High School soft­ball play­ers. Col­lege coaches from all over the state packed the stands to watch as play­ers show­cased their talent.

Dur­ing the games, coaches would tell play­ers where they wanted to see them play and/or how they wanted to them to hit (left or right). Thacker said she talked with about five schools, some of which in­vited her to visit their re­spec­tive cam­puses.
