It is only fitting that Cindi Edington will become a “Wasp.” She’s been “stinging” teams all season with her red hot bat and stellar play on the diamond.
Edington made it official by signing with Emory and Henry to play college softball on Thursday at Johnson County High School. She is a great find for E&H located 35 minutes from Johnson County.
Edington has been on a tear this season. She has 12 home runs so far and 28 for her career. She’s currently hitting over .450 and leads the team in RBIs. But that’s only half of what makes her so valuable.
The senior sensation can play outfield, infield and pitch. She is a coach’s dream according to JCHS’ head coach Dana Smith.
“There is not anything that Cindi won’t do to get better as a player,” said Smith. “She works very hard in the classroom and takes advanced classes. She’s a team leader and the girls look up to her. She’s a coach’s dream as a player and as a person. She will do anything we ask of her. Cindi is the most versatile player that I’ve ever coached. Emory is getting the real deal.”
Edington is excited about moving on to play at the next level. It’s something that has always been in the back of her mind.
“I’ve wanted to play college softball ever since I was a little girl,” said Edington. “I’ve worked and worked to achieve my goal of playing at the next level. But there is more to this than just softball. I’m going to a good school where I can get a great education. Playing softball there is an added plus. All this is like a dream come true.”
Edington was starting to draw interest from several colleges. It took a one-night stay with her future teammates to seal the deal.
