The 2013 team will feature six returning players including 4
position starters and two pitchers. 2012 GCAA All-Conference
player and MGC lead-off hitter Adele Harrison will return to
the outfield and she will be accompanied by her drag/slap
partner Jenna Hanson, power hitters Keri Tompkins and Susanna
Stokes, and pitchers Katie Turner and Kayla Mills. MGC will be
adding more speed in the 2013 edition with Dodge County's Jaye
Hilliard, Kayla Bawkin of Brantley County, and Kaylin McCoy of
Valdosta. The Warriors will also pick up additional power
hitting from Bawkin, Julie Anne Bradley (Stratford Academy),
Lana Maddox (Bleckley County), and Caitlin Greer (Dodge
County). McCoy and Alyssa Amerson of GMC are very welcomed
additions to the pitching staff. All of the players know each
other and are doing off season training and playing in
preparation to return MGC to post season play in 2013.
The 2012 Warriors posted a 24-23 season record and missed the
NJCAA Region XVII Tournament for the first time since 2003.
The team played well in the toughest fastpitch schedule it has
faced to date. MGC played 11 games against six nationally
ranked programs and nine All-American players.
Offensively, the team was led by by Adele Harrison with a .412
average and 31 runs scored. Mallory Davis contributed a .377
average and Elliott Martin finished with a .311 average.
Jordan Miller led the team in home runs (7) and RBIs (38).
Katie Turner 2.44, Mallory Riner 2.55, and Kayla Mills 2.91
performed all of the mound work for the 2012 team.
Harrison was named to the GCAA All Conference (first team).
