Bailey Offill Completes Senior Season

Former Van Alstyne Lady Panther Bailey Offill has competed her senior season as a member of the Texas A&M-Kingsville softball team.

Offill, who earned her degree in education with a minor in special education, was the Javelinas’ second-leading hitter with a .302 average. In the 2014 season she had a .933 fielding percentage, was successful on 7-of-11 steal attempts and had 13 doubles.

Offill had a slash line of .302/.377/.395, all quality offensive numbers for the infielder who started her collegiate career at McLennan in Waco.

In her first season with the Highlassies she helped lead the team to a NJCAA World Series appearance.

Offill transferred to Kingsville for her sophomore year and raised her batting average almost 10 points above her freshman year.

In February of her senior season, Offill had a 4-for-4 day at the plate in a tournament game in San Antonio against East Central University with a double in the contest. All accomplished on a 45 degree day with winds blowing at 25 miles per hour (I’ll bet the parents had the heater working on that trip.)

Congratulations to a former Lady Panther.

Emily Taylor Wraps First Year at A&M Commerce

Emily Taylor, a four-year golf standout at Howe High School, has completed her freshman year at Texas A&M Commerce.

Taylor, who led the Lady Bulldogs to four consecutive state tournaments, showed steady improvements over the two-part season.

She played 15 rounds with the Lady Lions and finished with a scoring average of 84.6, sixth on the team.

Taylor’s best round was a 79 which she fired in the second round of the Midwestern State Mustang Invitational at the Champions Course in Wichita Falls. She had a two-round total of 165.

In the Lone Star Conference Championships at Horseshoe Bay, Taylor finished in the top 20 with a two-day total of 167.

Taylor is expected to get longer off the tee, and after her indoctrination into the rigors of collegiate golf we look for big things from the former Lady Bulldog.
