|Lady Vikings playing for title|
A year under her belt as head softball coach and a district title to shoot for has Vidalia Lady Viking head softball coach Jeanne Hall excited about the 2008 season.
"They know how I want things to be done," said Hall, who took over the Vidalia softball program after serving as an assistant coach for Gary Paul Parnham, who is now an assistant with the Viking baseball team. "They know me and I know them and the girls have really been working hard. We hit the weights in the off-season and had a lot of conditioning drills and its showing up in practice. I've got some great leadership and they are ready to hit the field."
After competing in a district without anyone else fielding a softball team, Vidalia High School jumps into a competitive District 3-3A.
Vidalia moved up to Class 3A this school year after competing in District 2-2A with schools with no softball.
"Some girls on this team don't know you have to win games to get into the playoffs," Hall said. "We're not going to get the free ride we've been getting."
District 3-3A is comprised of traditional softball powers Buckeye, Bunkie and Marksville.
Buckeye lost to Kaplan in the Class 3A quarterfinals, while Marksville fell to Benton, 2-0 in the first round.
Vidalia defeated Livonia in the first round of the Class 2A playoffs last year before falling to Mamou in the second round, finishing 17-12-1.
Lady Viking senior Brittany Whittington returns after seeing extensive action on the mound the last two seasons.
"Brittany has really been working hard and she's more aggressive on the mound this season," Hall said. "This is her last year and she really wants to leave on a positive note."
Hall must replace B.B.Waller, who is now at LSU-Eunice. Waller, playing catcher, led the Lady Vikings wtih a .423 batting average.
Senior Mary Katherine Golden, who hit .421 last season, is being moved from first base to catcher in Waller's spot.
"Mary Katherine has really been pounding the ball and we're expecting big things from her," Hall said.
Senior Chelsie McElwee returns at shortstop after hitting .338 laste season, batting in 18 runs.
Other returning seniors are Tori Lemoine and Brittany Evans.
Junior Chelsea Warren returns in the outfield after hitting .400.
Other juniors are Erika Brown, Claire Roberts, Katlyn Wilson and Sydney Guidroz.
Sophomore Eryn Secrest returns at third base after hitting .333 as a freshman last season.
Other sophomores are Kassi Randall and Dara Fauver.
Freshmen are Caitlyn Hendricks, Savannah Walker, Mary Sanders, Julie White and Alaina Burns.
