Caldwell County and Christian County took the winner and runner-up positions in the 2020 YourSportsEdge.Com/First Financial Bank Softball “Fan Faves.”
Caldwell County’s Madi Choate finished as the top vote getter this year. Choate was a 6-year veteran of the Caldwell County Lady Tiger softball program. She was expected to take over third base this year after spending most of last year at first. On offense, she hits for power with an incredible exit speed off her bat. As an 8th grader, she recorded the most doubles in a season for Caldwell County. The team was expecting big things offensively from Choate after getting votes for the pre-season watch list for All-Region.
Christian County’s Hannah Sumner and Hope Jones tied for the runner-up slot in this year’s voting. Sumner is a seven-year member of the Christian County softball team. She was the one pitcher for the 2019 season as a junior. She had a record of 25 wins and 4 losses and pitched the bulk of the innings with 169.1 innings pitched. She finished the year with 2.11 ERA, 41 walks and had 88 strikeouts. She is committed to Lindsey Wilson to play golf and is planning on majoring in math.
Jones is a career .368 hitter and a five-year varsity starter. She has been a member of the Lady Colonel softball team for seven years. She hit .358 in 2019 with 40 runs scored, 12 doubles and five homeruns. She is committed to continue her softball career at Murray State University and is ranked 12th in the 2020 CCHS senior class.
