A free softball clinic was held by Fairfield Lady Eagles March 19-20 for students in 3rd through 6th grades, with or without softball experience. During this free clinic, the Lady Eagles worked individually with these young players, both teaching by example and answering questions. They worked in stations to address a variety of skills and covered all aspects of the game. The clinic served as a perfect opportunity for the younger girls to meet and form bonds with the 2018 team. Softball is in full “swing” and players invite community members to cheer on their favorite team, Little League through high school!

Hatcher named 7th in state

Fairfield High School junior Jashaugn Hatcher made Fairfield proud while competing at the Texas High School State Powerlifting Meet in Abilene last weekend. Hatcher competed in the 198 weight class and finished 7th in the State. His lifts totaled 1,430 for the day, although not as high as his regional total of 1,515. Hatcher was accompanied by Head Coach Kevin Childers and Coach Joel Kuehl, as well as friend and teammate Ty Bachtel. There was a small group of "fans" who followed him out west and will continue to support his lifting efforts to meet new goals his senior year.

“This is real life,” said Fairfield junior Morgan Treece to a group of about 50 students who participated in the walk out she planned. Treece planned the event, held March 20 at Fairfield High School, to show her support of the victims and families of school shootings.

“This has been something that has been very heavy on my heart recently,” she said. “I'm just blessed to have had such a great support group.”

Since the beginning of 2018, there have been 18 school shootings across the country, with the most recent being the Valentine's Day shooting at Florida's Marjorey Stoneman Douglas High School.

“I wanted to use my voice as an positive outlet for those who no longer have a voice,” she said. “There were parents who lost their children, kids who lost their friends, and siblings who have lost their brother or sister.”

Treece said she was really only expecting her close friends and herself to participate.
