Jade O' Neal Among Seniors to be Honored before Blue Ridge's Softball Game Friday

At 4:20 p.m., the seniors on Blue Ridge's softball team will ceremoniously stare at the end of a time in their lives they will never forget.

One of those seniors is catcher Jade O'Neal, who will attend Illinois Central College next year. There, she will major in business and minor in photography, hoping it will lead to owning a photography business.

However, no matter where she goes in life, she says she will never forget her experiences as a catcher for the Lady Knights.

"I love this team," O'Neal said. "Me and Jordan [Wheeler] have been together for three years. We worked so hard to get where we are. I'm going to miss Blue Ridge softball when I leave."

For head coach Myron Schroeder, it will be the last time he will see Senior Day as the Lady Knights' head coach. After this season, he will enjoy retirement activities such as going to Arizona for spring training.

"I spend a lot of time there," Schroeder said. "I have a condo that is only a few blocks away from Diablo Stadium, which the [Los Angeles] Angels' park."

However, Schroeder insists that the Senior Day festivities are not about him.

"It ought to be about the kids; it ain't about me," Schroeder said.

In addition to O'Neal, Jordyn Fones, Marcie Crawford, Hannah Mattingly, Paige Weidner and Kalyn Reynolds will also be honored on Senior Day.
