May 5, 2022 was declared “Griffin Day” by the DeSoto Parish School Board. The Lady Griffins softball coach and players were all at the board meeting as a resolution was read and presented.
The team also brought along their state championship trophy. The Lady Griffins were undefeated in the playoff bracket and wrapped up the state title earlier this month.
Coach Tim Whitman and his players were all introduced by Superintendent Clay Corley. They posed in front of the board for a group picture and accepted the applause of the board and audience at the meeting.
Whitman said, “We appreciate all you do (for the team) and all of the parish. The administration that runs the school is amazing. Also, thanks to the middle school for their help with the program.” Whitman concluded, “Hopefully we can work on another title next year.”
