This year Riverdale Academy had four players make the All-MAIS softball team. Senior pitcher/first baseman Jessie Kate Cobb made the most of her senior season. In addition to winning 11 games on the mound and her .378 batting average, Cobb had 28 hits, including 2 doubles and 21 RBIs. Sophomore catcher Jadyn King put up impressive numbers as well. Along with her .425 batting average, which included 34 hits, 8 of which were doubles, a triple, and 16 RBIs, King was near perfect in the field. She had an outstanding .980 fielding percentage with only 3 errors behind the plate the entire season.
Freshman slugger Julia Grace Riggs also earned All-MAIS honors. Last year as an 8th grader, Riggs worked her way up to a starting position at 3rd base, where she continued to thrive this year. She had a .312 batting average with 8 doubles, a triple, and a homerun. Riggs also led the team in RBIs with 23. Another freshman, Hanna Catherine Huddleston, had a fabulous year on the diamond. She had a .362 batting average, recording 25 hits, including 5 doubles and 3 triples, which were the most on the team for this year. She also had a .769 fielding percentage with only 6 errors on the year in her centerfield position.
The future looks bright for Lady Rebel softball as three of the four All-MAIS players return next season. Congratulations ladies! The Riverdale family is proud of you all!
