The Granville County Board of Commissioners has recognized the “Lady Vikings” softball team of South Granville High School with a proclamation in honor of their championship legacy.
The team has a record of 218 wins and only 19 defeats since 2011, and has made seven regional series appearances, six of them being consecutive. Most recently, the “Lady Vikings” won the North Carolina State 2AA Championships in 2015, 2016 and 2018, with the 2018 state championships resulting in a perfect record of 27 wins and no losses. A regional appearance followed in 2019 (18 wins and only 4 losses).
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 “Lady Vikings” were declared winners of the Eastern Regionals, and went on to compete in the championship series.
The Commissioners’ proclamation reads, in part, “The South Granville High School Lady Vikings softball team has a stellar winning tradition. This tradition has provided many great moments in which the City of Creedmoor and Granville County residents take great pride. They will always be remembered for their athletic success and for continuing to be ambassadors of Granville County.”
The 2021 team includes Brooke Bowling, Paige Strickland, Jenna Curry, Kaitlyn Goss, Savannah Thompson, Megan Ellis, Maddie Gerovac, Candace Strombeck, Jani Spruill. Georgia Preddy, Kylyn Dean and Savannah Norton. Coaches for the team are Head Coach Jackie Day and Assistant Coaches Donnie Boyd and Scott Brogdon. Sherry Thompson serves as statistician.
