High School Sports

PARIS (WCIA) — Paris softball standout Kaitlyn Mathews is the WCIA 3 Athlete of the Week. The Tigers junior is hitting .608 this season with 45 hits including 4 home runs. Her 23 RBI’s and 37 runs scored are a big reason the Tigers have won 17-straight games and already tied the program record for wins with 21. On the mound Kaitlyn is also 8-1 as a starter with a 1.71 ERA.

“It’s really fun being a leader on this team and it’s been a really good year so far,” Mathews said. “It’s already gone far above my expectations, and we just click really well as a team, and we’re all competitiors, so being able to help lead us to success has been really fun.”

Mathews is now eligible for a $500 scholarship we’ll give away in June to one weekly winner. To vote for the next Athlete of the Week, click here:
