>Whitney Mills finally got her chance to shine for the Santa Fe Community College softball team, and she came through with flying colors.

Mills, the 2007 Chiefland High graduate, saw limited playing time through much of the season for the Lady Saints of SFCC.

In the most important tournament of the season, coach turned Mills loose.

As a designated hitter, she excelled for the Lady Saints in the JUCO Nationals played Thursday through Saturday in Plant City.

Santa Fe had to settle for second in the nation after dropping a 5-2 decision to Wallace State.

The win was Wallace State's 41st straight. Santa Fe finished the season with a sparklig record of 62-5-1.

Mills played in all seven tourney games. She had hits in all but two of the games.

In the finals against Wallace, Mills was 1-for-3.

SFCC defeated San Jacinto, Texas, 13-2 to get to the finals. Mills scored a run in that game.

In a losers-bracket game Saturday morning, Santa Fe stayed alive with a 6-1 victory over Chattanooga State. Mills was 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs.
