Mary Katherine Saratsiotis played softball for the Lady Raiders for the past four years. After graduation, Saratsiotis plans to go to college, with hopes of eventually attending law school.

The third senior to be honored was Gracie Wilson. Wilson played softball for the Lady Raiders for three years. After graduation, Wilson plans to attend Georgia Southern and major in business.

The Lady Raiders will travel up to Loganville, GA on Saturday, October 14, to take on George Walton Academy in the first round of the GIAA Class AAA State Playoffs. The first pitch of Game 1 is slated to begin at 12 p.m. Saturday.
