MACON, Ga., November 6, 2017 – Three Tattnall Square Academy seniors will sign letters of intent in the presence of their families, coaches, friends, and peers in the Athletic Complex Tuesday Nov. 14, from 1:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. All students and parents are invited to recognize these members of the Class of 2018 who will continue their sports careers at the college level. Allie Gordon and Carley Ingle will play softball at Belhaven University in Mississippi, and Logan Simmons will play baseball at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
Allie Gordon, a starter on Tattnall’s varsity softball team since the eighth grade, has set school career records in career batting average (.426), single season batting average (.505), career hits (226), career runs scored (164), career RBI (189), career extra base hits (88), career doubles (50), career triples (14), single season triples (7), and career home runs (24). Gordon played a key role in the Lady Trojans’ advancement to the Elite 8.
“Allie has anchored TSA’s softball team in her five years on the varsity level, including our first Fastpitch Softball State Championship in 2013,” commented Coach Joey Hiller.
Carley Ingle transferred to TSA her junior year and started for two seasons in 2016 and 2017. She played a vital role in helping lead the Lady Trojans to the Elite 8 in the GHSA two years in a row.
“Carley’s skill level, leadership, and excitement about the game have helped drive this team and last year’s team to its two most successful seasons in the GHSA,” stated Coach Hiller.
Logan Simmons, a starter on TSA’s baseball team since his freshman year, has helped lead Tattnall baseball to a GHSA Final 4 appearance, a GHSA State Championship, and a GHSA State Runner Up finish. He excelled in his sophomore season when he hit a solo walk off homerun in the bottom of the seventh in the first game of the State Championship Series, and when he pitched a complete game to win TSA’s first State Championship in the GHSA.
“Logan Simmons is one of the most talented players to ever come through Tattnall. His work ethic for this game matches no one we have ever seen. His dedication to the fundamentals of the game and pursuing his dreams are unmatched,” Coach Hiller expressed.
Tattnall will miss three softball seniors next fall. Ashleigh Morton has currently elected not to play college softball, although she has had several offers. Simmons has one more baseball season remaining, and TSA is looking forward to great leadership from him in the spring.
