Fastpitch Softball - Girls Varsity
The Stratford Softball Program began in 1982 under Coach Grady Smith. At this time the girls were playing slow-pitched softball. They won three GISA State Championships and were State Runners-up two times. In 2001 the Eaglettes transitioned from slow-pitch to fast pitch under Coach Cater Piece. Current Coach Jeff Treadway took over the program in 2003 and has led Stratford to four State Championships. In the fall of 2014 the Eaglettes moved to the GHSA and were State-Runners-up in 2015. The Stratford Softball Program has produced 48 All-State players.
2017 Varsity Softball Recap
by Ashlin Jackson, Class of 2019
The varsity softball team had an excellent season. The team consisted of 16 players this season, and six out of the 16 were seniors. The team went 16-9 throughout their 2017 campaign and made it all the way to the Elite Eight in Columbus where they finished in the top six. Throughout the season the team had some big wins against region rivals, MDS and FDP. The team’s strengths were solid defense and great pitching by freshman Kenna McElmurray and senior Tori Dover. The team's six seniors, Emma Davis, Tori Dover, Cochran Lee, Morgan Mathis, Evans McCook, and Carlin Weinberg played a huge role in the team's success. This group of girls will be missed dearly , while the returning 10 players will work hard for another great varsity season next fall.
