TO SALUTE THE CLOVER HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL TEAM ON ITS EXCELLENT SEASON AND TO CONGRATULATE THE TEAM'S FINE ATHLETES ON THEIR IMPRESSIVE WIN OF THE 2015 CLASS AAAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP.
Whereas, supremely ready for the challenge, the Clover High School softball team captured the 2015 Class AAAA State Championship title, defeating Summerville 3-1 on Friday, May 22, 2015, at Carolina Softball Stadium in Columbia; and
Whereas, as exultant Blue Eagle fans looked on, their players packed up the first state championship trophy ever won in the softball program's history, making the win an especially sweet one; and
Whereas, Blue Eagle supporters, in fact, were already making plans to watch their softball team do it again at next year's title series. The win rocketed Clover to the end of a superb season; and
Whereas, Clover drove in two runs as part of a three-run fourth inning, and that was all the Blue Eagles needed in the decisive game of a best-of-three series. Summerville got on the board in the top of the sixth, but the Blue Eagles held on and sealed the win; and
Whereas, such victories do not come overnight; they take determination and hard work. With proven consistency in both, Head Coach Shea Hall and Assistant Coach Allison Knapp have built their softball program into one of championship caliber that refuses to settle for second best; and
Whereas, the journey to winning the state title required discipline, dedication, and teamwork, qualities that always will serve these young athletes well, both on and off the softball field. With admiration, the House recognizes and applauds the outstanding work of the Clover High School softball team and wishes its members much continued success in all their future endeavors. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, salute the Clover High School softball team on its excellent season and congratulate the team's fine athletes on their impressive win of the 2015 Class AAAA State Championship.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Mark Hopkins and Coach Shea Hall of Clover High School.
