South Side Softball Young Team

JACKSON, Tenn — The Lady Hawks of South Side sit at the top of their districts right now, while they head down the final stretch of the regular season.

The team has eight freshman, making this one of coach Lori Benson’s youngest teams. But because their young doesn’t mean she doesn’t trust them. Coach Benson said the team loves the game of softball, their a family on and off the field.

This helps as the Hawks look to finish strong, before entering a grueling district tournament.

When asked to describe her ball club, Benson said, “special.”

“Their a special group and that’s what I keep telling them. They can do special things, or they can accomplish something special if they just focus and do what they have to do. They get along well, they hangout outside of practice and just the love they have for the game. They all share it, they all want it. And I think that’s whats so special about them,” Benson said.
