Cheraw— The Cheraw Lady Braves’ softball team maybe be sitting at .500 overall, but more importantly, Cheraw opened region play undefeated after the first two games.

Head Coach Kevin Thurman returns this season to lead the Lady Braves.

“The strength of our team are our seniors,” he says. “For the past couple of year this class, along with some of the underclassmen, have played in some pressure games so they have the experience to be patient through some of the growing pains we are having right now,” he says.

Thurman said that has team just needs experience at this point.

“We just need to get to play and get that experience on the field,” he says. “We return a lot of players but their playing time was limited in years past.

“We have seven new faces in the field with Eryn Butler and Callie Bryant returning in the middle, so getting that playing time in is going to be crucial for us early.

Thurman also pointed out that his team is playing in Class AAA this year for the first time so they are also getting to know their opponents.

Other key members for the Lady Braves include Dee Robinson, a senior in right field, Kianna Murray, a senior at first base, Freshman pitcher Jazz Dixon, and Sophomore outfielders Temple Jones.

Thurman also added that his seniors are “a great group” of players.

He also talked about his team’s goals.

“Our goals stay the same every year,” he says. “We want to compete at a high level and we want to get better every day.

“If we get better and compete, we will be proud of whatever we accomplish,” he adds.
