Cobb Ends Softball Career on High Note

By Molly Seales

On Wednesday, October 12, Riverdale senior pitcher/1st baseman Jessie Kate Cobb traveled to Jackson, MS, to play in the Class 2A/3A softball all-star game. Jessie played on the blue team and played with and against the best seniors in class 2A and 3A. Jessie Kate got the start at 1st base and then played 1st again later in the game. She was perfect on her chances for put-outs with no errors-a 1.000 fielding percentage. She also pitched an inning, allowing no hits and striking out a batter. Although her team didn’t win, Jessie Kate had a great time. She said, “I really had a lot of fun and will never forget the experience. I enjoyed making friends with softball players from other teams.”

Jessie Kate has at a stellar career for the Lady Rebels, playing softball for seven years. She has earned numerous team awards as well as all district honors. Last year she was district MVP and an all-MAIS selection. This year she was first team all-district and was chosen by MAIS coaches to play in the all-star game. Jessie Kate’s coaches are Tabitha King and Rodney Cobb. She is the daughter of Rodney and Mary Vay Cobb. Her presence, pitching, and leadership will be greatly missed on the diamond next year. We love you and are proud of you!
