Highland Softball Players Earn NJCAA Honors
Two members of Coach Heidi Jordan’s softball squad at Highland Community College have earned post-season honors from the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). Freshman shortstop Kaley Pyles (DeKalb, MO) was named to the NJCAA All American First Team. Holly Wilmarth, a freshman outfielder from Maryville, MO, was NJCAA All American Second Team. This season, the Scotties qualified for the NJCAA Division II National Tournament for the fourth straight year, winning two games in the Tournament before being eliminated. Pyles and Wilmarth were both outstanding power hitters and excellent fielders, setting the field for another successful season for the Scotties in 2014.
