TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND COMMEND THE CONWAY CHRISTIAN SCHOOL SOFTBALL TEAM, COACHES, AND SCHOOL OFFICIALS FOR AN OUTSTANDING SEASON AND TO CONGRATULATE THEM FOR GARNERING THE 2013 SOUTH CAROLINA ASSOCIATION OF CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS CLASS AA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
Whereas, the Conway Christian School softball team won back-to-back straight state championship titles by emerging victorious from the state postseason playoffs in Sumter on Friday, May 3, and Saturday, May 4, 2013; and
Whereas, in a thrilling game for the ages, the Conway Lady Eagles retained their state title against a valiant challenge from Hartsville's Emmanuel Christian School when Chelsea Broughman drove in the winning run, her third double for the game, in the third extra inning; and
Whereas, leading the Lady Eagles, Division I prospect Chelsea Broughman is a powerhouse hitter and outstanding pitcher, who posted three homeruns this season; and
Whereas, the back-to-back victory for the Lady Eagles holds twice the excitement because the Conway Christian School baseball team won its second state title in a row on the same day; and
Whereas, the Lady Eagles' softball team accumulated fifteen straight wins this season, with a total of twenty-nine straight wins in two years; and
Whereas, both the softball and baseball championship teams from Conway Christian are fielded from a student body consisting of only sixty-nine students, coming from grades seven through twelve; and
Whereas, Head Coach Corky Connor used her own athletic ability and training to hone a winning team and to instill valuable lessons in the Lady Eagles that will see them through the challenges of life on and off the fields of competition; and
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina General Assembly are grateful for the sense of pride and recognition that the Conway softball players have given to their school and their community and expect to follow their success in the future. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the South Carolina General Assembly, by this resolution, acknowledge and commend the Conway Christian School softball team, coaches, and school officials for an outstanding season and congratulate them for garnering the South Carolina Association of Christian Schools Class AA State Championship title.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Connie Smith, Athletic Director Tim Lee, and Coach Corky Connor.
