The Daily Journal held its 2017 Winter/Spring Sports Banquet on Monday, where dozens of area teams and athletes were honored for their exploits this year. Two of those athletes were Hallie Donald and Trace Henry, both of Mooreville.
Donald was named the Player of the Year in softball, while Henry was Player of the Year in baseball. The seniors, both of whom are bound for Jones County Junior College, put up huge numbers and led their respective teams to state championships.
On this episode, we talk with Donald (5:07) about her stellar season and the Lady Troopers’ second straight state title in Class 3A. We also visit with Henry (12:01), whose work at the plate and on the mound propelled Mooreville to its ninth state crown but first in 12 years.
