Lady Cougar standout softball pitcher Maddie Hobbs has been recognized for her play this past spring by being named to the “Best Under the Sun” team by the Jonesboro Sun.

Hobbs, who helped the Lady Cougars advance through district and regional play and into the state softball tournament, was named as a utility player for the squad.

Serving as the workhorse of the program, she had a 14-7 record while striking out 114 batters and only walking 22. She was also the only player named from a 1A team, on a roster dominated by stars from Valley View, Greene County Tech, Jonesboro, Brookland, Paragould, Rivercrest, Trumann, Harrisburg, Hoxie, Walnut Ridge, Tuckerman and EPC.
