Centennial's Paige Cassady signs with Trevecca
Trevecca softball coach Ben Tyree has signed former Volunteer State Community College and Centennial High School star Paige Cassady.
Cassady, who is a left-handed hitter and thrower, played for coach Johnny Lynn at Vol State where she was named to the 2013 All-TJCCAA first team and was a NJCAA third team All-American.
The 5-foot-7 catcher/first baseman batted .506 for the Pioneers as a sophomore, which ranked her fourth in the nation. Cassady added 16 doubles, two triples, 38 RBI, 37 runs scored, two stolen bases and a .532 on base percentage.
"We welcome Paige to our program,” Tyree said, “She chose Trevecca over several NCAA Division I offers. I've watched her play for years alongside other Trevecca standouts like Allison Gaddis, Heather Shuler, and Kelsey Kemp. Paige will bring good at-bats to our lineup and is that great team player we are looking for. She can play several positions for us and brings experience to our team."
Her other awards at Vol State include being named to the All-Region academic team as a freshman.
As a freshman, Cassady hit .374 with 19 runs scored, 25 RBI, six doubles, and two triples.
Cassady played her senior year for the Cougars at Centennial High School. She played for the Wildcats at Battle Ground Academy prior to her move to Centennial. At BGA she was named All-Region as a sophomore and MVP as a junior. At Centennial she was selected All-District.
