Kendra W. will remain a Cav even after she graduates in May. The Holston High School senior recently signed to play softball for the UVA Wise Cavaliers. As a four-year varsity starter, she has put up some impressive numbers. Last year she posted a batting average of over .400 while hitting 2 home runs. She has also been flawless in field as a shortstop, continually impressing her coach Lisa Blackburn by making impossible plays seem routine. She began her career in machine pitch softball at age seven and has played steadily since then. Although she has been involved in other sports at Holston, softball remains her true passion. She will begin tournament play in the fall and launch her regular season play next spring. She joins her older sister Chelsea, who signed with King University in 2015, as a college level athlete. She intends to study nursing and leave UVA Wise with a BSN degree.
Holston High School congratulates Kendra on her great achievement and wishes her continued success in the future.
