Senior Reagan Hall announced on November 7 that she will continue her softball career at Stephen F. Austin State University. Reagan, a 2023 3A SPC Champion team member, put up impressive stats last spring: She pitched 86.2 innings, had 173 strikeouts, held her opponents’ batting average to .123, and had an earned run average of 0.888. Career-wise, Reagan hit 400 career strikeouts during the SPC Championship game versus John Cooper. In that game, she surrendered just three hits and two walks while striking out 14. 

Reagan’s coach also happens to be her mother, DeAnn Hall, who has enjoyed her vantage point. “When I became a coach years ago, I dreamt of being able to coach my children one day. It hasn't always been easy, especially for Reagan. She has me as her coach in high school ball, but for the past six years, she has played travel ball for her dad,” DeAnn said. “I feel like it's been easier for me to take off the ‘mom hat’ than it has been for Reagan to be able to separate ‘mom and coach.’ She has been a trooper, though! 

“I am blessed with a coaching staff who understands the situation and can step in without hesitation when Reagan needs to hear someone other than her mom/coach,” DeAnn continued. “Having already experienced an SPC Championship in 2011, I wanted our 2023 team to experience that same joy so badly. Knowing Reagan was on the field made the victory that much sweeter. I can't believe our time on the field together is almost over. I hope she will look back and cherish the memories as I know I will. Her dad and I will always be her biggest fans even though we will now support her from the stands and not the dugout.”

Athletic Director Leigh Block is always happy to see student-athletes excel and follow their passion. “Reagan is someone you want to be around -- she has a terrific sense of humor and is very competitive and humble,” he said. “She's an awesome teammate who has contributed to our program every season as a three-sport athlete through high school. We're very proud of her!”
