East Bay rings in the champions
The state champion East Bay High School girls softball team was recognized with championship rings before the East Bay-Durant Homecoming football game on Friday. The championship rings, presented to each player and coach from the team, were provided by the East Bay Alumni Association. The 2009-10 varsity softball team went 24-7 for the season, ultimately shutting out Niceville for the State Championship on May 13 at the National Training Center in Clermont. It was East Bay High School’s first state championship in any sport in the 52-year history of the school. Star pitcher Kayla Cox returned from North Carolina State University to attend the event. Cox is currently a freshman at the university and is a member of the NC State Wolfpack softball team.
