Kirsten Eversole, a sophomore, was named to the All-State team by the Tennessee Softball Coaches Association. Eversole is the first Trousdale County softball player ever to be named all-state.

Eversole joins Sydney Shoulders (2013) as Lady Jacket softball players to be named to an all-state team.

She finished her sophomore season batting .453 with 29 RBIs and four home runs, including a grand slam. She had an on-base percentage of .554 and a fielding percentage of .955 while playing shortstop and first base.

“Kirsten is the first all-state player I have had in softball,” said Lady Jackets coach Blake Satterfield. “As a coach it was a goal of mine to just get her on the field after an ankle injury in basketball. For just playing from spring break until sectionals and having the season she did says great things.”

Eversole helped lead the Lady Jackets to an 18-9 record, the District 6-A regular season and tournament championships and a spot in the Class A sectionals.

“We have many girls on our team I expect to be receiving awards in the future for TCHS softball,” Satterfield added.
