Novi Christian

Congratulations to our Senior Varsity Softball Players, (left to right):
Julianna Dubuc, Katie McCormick, Molly Jebson

Congratulations to the entire NCA Softball team who received the MHSSCA Academic All-State Team 2020 Award, and to Katie McCormick who received the MHSSCA Academic All-State Individual 2020 Award.

Julianna “JuJu” Dubuc, who previously played first base, was promoted to catcher this year and would have done a great job. Besides her great catching abilities, she had the needed vocal chords and leadership qualities! Julianna played softball throughout high school and her coaches enjoyed her desire to improve and teachable spirit. She has a joy for life that is contagious to those around her. Julianna graduates with Honors and plans to attend Schoolcraft College, majoring in culinary arts and minoring in communications.

Katie McCormick played varsity softball and volleyball during her four years of high school. This year, she placed 2nd in the lineup to bat and would have been the third baseman. Katie, a multi-sport athlete, figure skated during the winter season. Katie was a joy to her coaches and has a quiet and gentle spirit. Katie was a member of the NHS and is graduating with High Honors. She plans to study engineering at Hope College.

Molly Jebson played on the varsity team in her freshman year and was making a comeback for her senior year. Molly, a natural and multi-sport athlete, would have been a star player for the softball team as short-stop. Her coaches enjoyed her coachable spirit and desire to improve. Molly also excelled in her positions on the varsity volleyball and basketball teams and was captain of both. Molly graduates with Honors and plans to attend Southwestern AOG University, majoring in hospitality & event planning, and minoring in psychology.

Oakland Christian

Left to Right, Row 1: Olivia Williams, Jackie Hagar, Nicole Vaught
Row 2:
Emily Jin, Autumn Maley

The Oakland Christian softball senior class is comprised of 4 players that would be returning with 3 years experience (Hagar, Maley, Vaught, Williams) and 1 international student that would be playing for the 1st time (Jin). This group of seniors was approaching this season with a world of experience and leadership abilities. They were a close group that was willing to sacrifice their personal desires for the good of the team. Autumn Maley was a utility player that played every spot in the outfield wherever needed in that moment. Jackie Hagar loved the outfield but did her best as the team’s first baseman when called upon, and Nicole Vaught took on the role of starting pitcher even though it wasn’t her natural position because the team was in need due to previous graduations. A supporter among leaders was Olivia Williams with her never ending support and leadership on the team. Always positive when her team needed it the most to help them move forward. One disappointment in this cancellation is that Emily Jin was unable to experience playing for a team she was learning to love as she enjoyed all the friendships she was creating as a member of the team building and workout experiences.

Oakland Christian is extremely proud of these players for what they have developed into as players and people over their years of participation in the softball program.

Plymouth Christian

The senior class members of the Plymouth Christian Academy Eagles softball team have had a tremendous career! When joining the team as freshman, the team was going through a drought of having only won one game the previous two years.  In 2017, due in large part to the contribution of these athletes, the team went 9-9.  By 2019, they were 11-6 and went on to win the MIAC Red Division Conference Championship and District Championships! The Plymouth Christian Academy Varsity Softball team was chomping at the bit to get this season started competing in the Blue Division this year and with goals of competing for a District and Regional trophy!
Thank you Ella GodinIsabel MosselGloria Ravuri, Lydia Sikes, and Eva Warmbier for the wonderful contributions you made to rebuilding the team and the positive impact you had through your hard work, leadership, and athletic fortitude.  May you continue to always play with joy…For Him!”
