College reunion

There are more than a handful of ballplayers from Chiefland and Cedar Key playing college softball this spring.

Three of them – former Lady Indians Lauren Stalvey, Lauren Parker and Sydney Parks – are wearing the same uniform again, reunited at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota in Bradenton. Stalvey is a sophomore pitcher, Parker is a freshman first baseman and Parks is a freshman second baseman. The trio were each three-time state champions at CMHS.

On Feb. 10, the trio enjoyed what felt like a homecoming, playing in front of family and Chiefland supporters for a doubleheader in north Gainesville against Santa Fe College.

Stalvey started in the circle in the first game and picked up a win in 4.2 innings of work, allowing two walks, five hits and just one earned run. The sophomore gave up the run in the first before settling in for her strongest statistical outing on the season.

Stalvey’s ERA on the season dropped to 3.07 over 13 ⅔ innings. At Chiefland, she was the ace pitcher for three state championship clubs.

Stalvey says she’s a lot more comfortable in her second year.
