Pamplico – If experience means anything in terms of winning softball games, the 2020 Hannah-Pamplico softball team could be in for a strong season.

Coach Brittany Owens returns eight players, including four seniors, to the team this season and expectations of making the state playoffs are real.

Leading the list of veteran seniors is catcher Mary Katherine Faulkenberry, who hit .529 last season and is a dependable worker behind the dish.

Three starters return in the outfield this spring. Senior Madison Boyle hit over .300 last season while senior Anna Pressley Munn hit .417 in 2019. Senior Mary Smith hit .333 and is an excellent defender.

Sophomore Jordyn Hudson and freshman Anna Claire Stone are returning infielders and will share most of the pitching duties. Stone hit for a .378 average last season.

Freshman Katelyn Scott is a utility defender and pitcher and excels offensively in the small ball game. Freshman Riley Calcutt also will log innings in the circle and returns as a starter at third base.

The Raiders will host Green Sea Floyds for their home opener on March 9. Region competition this spring include East Clarendon, Andrews, Carver’s Bay, Mullins, Kingstree, Latta and Johnsonville.

Look for a baseball preview in our next issue. The Raiders were 12-9 last season.

Basketball wrap up

The basketball season at Hannah-Pamplico did not go as well as Raider fans hoped. Both the boys and girls teams struggled to find consistent success this winter.

The girls team managed just one victory and failed to win a region game. Graduating seniors include Elana Watkins, Anna Munn, Hailey Rodgers, Maddy Boyle, Mary Smith and Elizabeth Turner.

The boys team finished with two region wins and three wins overall with a fairly young roster.

The top two scorers were sophomores Cyrus Ellison and Davian Coaxum. Ellison averaged 17.9 points and 8.9 rebounds per game while Coaxum averaged 14.4 points and 6.7 rebounds. Coaxum also contributed 3.4 steals and 3.3 assists per game.

Another sophomore, Zander Poston, will contribute next season after averaging about five points per game this season.

Hannah-Pamplico lost seven games by single digits this season.
