Name: Beth Pearson

Sport: Softball 

Grade: Junior 

Accomplishments: Beth has one of the most consistent bats on the team. She was 3-3 in the girls win vs. Hollidaysburg and had a grand slam in the win against Philipsburg. She has also been a steady defensive presence behind the plate as the team’s starting catcher. 

Coach Doug Myers’ quote: 

“Beth has had a great season and a really great week. Beth became a big part of our success from the first day she started high school softball. She took over the catching duties as a sophomore (she missed her freshman year due to COVID’s lost season) and she’s been there ever since. Our coaching staff really appreciates everything Beth has dedicated to Golden Eagle softball and we are counting on her to take over as one of our team leaders and as a team captain next season. We are very fortunate to have Beth as part of our program.”
