Loyd Star’s Cade signs with Co-Lin Wolf Pack softball

Loyd Star senior outfielder Malori Cade recently signed a letter-of-intent with the Copiah-Lincoln Community College softball program.

As a junior Cade hit .410 at the plate for coach Jan Delaughter and the Lady Hornets. Cade smacked 41 hits including eight doubles, six triples and one home run. She drove in 31 runs for the Region 7-2A champions and stole eight bases.

“Mal is an excellent player,” said Delaughter. “She is very dedicated to her sport. Her off-season workout ethic has made her into the exceptional player she is today. She will be a great asset to Co-Lin.”

At Co-Lin Cade will join former Lady Hornet Johnna Norman who is a freshman for CLCC this season.

“We are thrilled to have Malori join us next year,” said Lady Wolves head coach Meleah Howard. “She has so much talent. She’s fast, athletic and determined to be successful. We look for Malori to be an impactful outfielder for us.”

Cade joins a list of locals that includes Madi Miller (BHS), Catherine Wilson (Wesson) and Shelbi Maxwell (Wesson) to sign with Co-Lin. The Lady Wolves have also announced the signings of pitcher Alli Grace Albritton (Parklane Academy), infielder Molly Johnson (Northwest Rankin) infielder Bridjette Jones-Talbert (North Pike), pitcher Madalyn Wilkinson (Germantown High) and pitcher Cera Blanchard (De La Salle, New Orleans).
