Heritage standout commits to Scots Softball

Maryville College's Softball club will be receiving a local out of Blount County's Heritage High School. Jazmine Geary will be joining Coach Leah Kelley's softball team as a pitcher.

Geary had an illustrious career both in the circle and in the batter's box. Jazmine recorded 32 wins with an impressive accumulation of 358.1 innings pitched. In those innings she posted 249 strikeouts. Her time at the plate culminated with 15 career home runs and a .369 batting average with a stellar .661 slugging percentage. In Geary's senior season she was named District Player of the Year and earned a spot on the East Tennessee Senior All-Star team.

Coach Kelley is excited to have Geary join her squad. She welcomes Jazmine with, "Jazmine is one of the best and most decorated student-athletes to ever come out of Blount County. She is a consistent hitter, phenomenal left-handed pitcher, and can play anywhere on the field. She will be an immediate impact player hoping to contribute to the program's success for years to come."

Leah Kelley and her team are looking forward to adding Geary to the roster for the upcoming season. The rest of Scots Nation will be looking for her to hopefully bring more successes like those of recent years.
