Last week, Franklin High School senior Maddy Cousineau signed to play college softball at Mississippi State University. She was joined by her parents, Sonja and Troy Cousineau, her coach Penny Moffitt and many friends.
Mississippi State is a Southeastern Conference School and as Athletic Director Jay Brooks pointed out, has the means to recruit all over the nation. The fact that they chose Cousineau is quite the honor for her, her family and friends, and FHS.
Cousineau, who plays volleyball as well, was offered the chance to play at Mississippi State based on her abilities behind the plate as catcher for the varsity softball team. Last season, as a junior, she had a batting average of .302 with 18 RBIs, five homeruns. She was also chosen as an All-WNCAC player.
