Fuquay-varina Softball Team Goes Deep

Fuquay-Varina’s fast-pitch softball team recently put itself into the North Carolina High School Athletic Association record book with a home run performance listing.

The Tigers banged out six home runs— all over the fence 200 feet from home plate– in a single game as Fuquay-Varina rolled past Panther Creek 26-0 at Panther Creek.

Senior shortstop Alexa Cannon slammed a pair of three-run homers and freshman first baseman Kelsey Ward also hit two, including a grand slam and a two-run shot.

Senior center fielder Camise Patterson and junior outfielder Jessi Johnson hit solo shots in the game.

The state record for home runs in a single game is eight, set by North Surry against Hibriten on March 24, 2004.
