The school’s softball coach Ralph Brooks said he was not surprised that Woods and Brown shined in Panama City.

“La’Donna Woods and Tiara Brown are outstanding players on and off the field,” Brooks said.   “These two seniors excel in the classroom and it has been my privilege to coach them. Respect is something of the past but these girls excel in it. They work extremely hard on the field and a great example for their teammates. I know that their future holds great opportunities in the college of their choice , any college team would be very fortunate to have them on board.”
