The Lady Patriots recognized senior softball players Samantha Burke and Ashlynn Randall on Tuesday, April 27.
These dedicated athletes have competed fiercely for White House Heritage and have earned our respect, honor and gratitude. Together they leave a legacy of leadership, positive attitudes, determination and dedication.
Before we brag on these two young ladies, I am sure I speak for them in thanking the parents, family, friends, coaches and many different teammates that have made their memories possible. Without the sacrifices of money, time, sweat and tears of many, these two young ladies would not be here today.
Just a few of their contributions this season include:
- 10 Homeruns
- Over 50 put-outs
- And 30+ RBI’s
…They have played a huge role in continuing a tradition of success for our Lady Patriots Softball program.
So, let’s get to it!
#7 Ashlynn Randall… Ashlynn is the daughter of Tom and Jennifer Blackwell. Playing 2nd base and outfield for her short time with us, Ashlynn leaves behind a legacy of never giving up on herself or her teammates, as well as, always staying positive! She will be remembered by her teammates for her positive leadership, motivating hard work and tenacity that kept her focused this season. Her advice to the teammates she is leaving behind is to, “Stop living your life afraid of what could go wrong and start getting excited about what could go right!” Such as Ashlynn’s favorite memory (so far) which is hitting one over the fence at Greenbrier. As she finishes her time here at Heritage, Ashlynn looks forward to studying Business Administration, at Tennessee Tech next fall. Ladies and gentlemen, 2021 Senior… Ashlynn Randall
#15 …Samantha Burke… Sam is the daughter of Dennis and Susan Burke, as well as sister to Emily… Samantha leaves behind a legacy of hard-work and leadership. One of her favorite memories is a “walk-off” Grand Slam to cap off a great victory over Harpeth High. She will be fondly remembered by her teammates for being an inspiring leader with a great attitude on and off the field. They will remember her jokes and watching out for Slenderman in PE. She would like to remind her teammates to live, laugh and love. After graduation, Sam will continue her education as a proud Volunteer at the University of Tennessee, in Knoxville, where she will study Forensic Anthropology … Ladies and gentlemen, 2021 Senior… Samantha Burke
The team also earned a hard fought 8-7 victory over Cheatham County Central!
