Softball with a VERY special commitment today

Haley McManus from East Wilkes High in Ronda, North Carolina posted on Twitter today that she has committed to the Hokies.

I don't know her specific stats from her senior year, but I know she had a good year. Based on the linked story, she is one special young lady. Sounds like she was hitting in the upper 60s before hitting a speed bump, so hopefully, she has returned to that level.

Her travel coach said this about her:

“Do you want a great leader in every aspect? Enlist Haley.”

“Need an unselfish stud pitcher who can sit the bench and root passionately for another pitcher on your team? Listen to Haley.”

“Do you need a dominant pitcher throwing 66 mph velo with a hard high spin count and crazy spin efficiency? Put Haley on the lineup card.”

“Do you need a good ole country girl to help you in a tree stand and find a trophy 10 pointer? Show your hunting license to Haley.”

“But most importantly, do you need a humble gentle giant to speak up about her Christian values in a Sunday morning testimony in front of several teams? Call Sister Haley.”

“What you can say without reservation is Haley has already won. She has won in her attitude and her view of this world only being her temporary home and this her temporary body.”

Hopefully, the story isn't password protected, but if it is, let me know and I'll copy and paste - it's THAT good!!!!

Welcome to Hokie Nation, Haley. I think you'll love it here!
