The Zachary High School softball team honored three of its players March 31 at Zachary Youth Park in between a doubleheader against Broadmoor High School.
The three seniors on the team — Deneisha Biagas, Chelsi Parker and Tori Schenk — were recognized with their families by coach Leslie Yellott, assistant coaches Rudy Koppenol, Brittney Perry and Robert Yellott, teammates and fans on senior night.
Senior night is a tradition that honors 12th-grade student-athletes at one of their last home games of the season.
Biagas, who was joined by her parents, Denise and Cory Fisher, is center fielder for the Lady Broncos.
The senior player said she will attend Southern University in the fall with plans to major in business management.
Parker, whose younger sister, Abriana, also plays for the Lady Broncos, will attend LSU to study biology so she can pursue a career in dentistry. Parker is a left fielder for ZHS.
The Parker sisters’ parents, Shawandalet and Bryan Parker, joined their daughters on the field for the senior night ceremony.
Schenk and her sister, Carlie, also a player on the softball team, were joined by their parents, Vicki and Gary Schenk, for the presentation of flowers followed by photographs.
Tori Schenk, who plays right field for the Lady Broncos, says she is attending Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond to study nursing.
The Zachary softball team defeated the Lady Buccaneers twice, both games ending with final scores of 16-0.
The Lady Broncos are scheduled to play two more district games at home — against Walker High School on April 9 and against Live Oak on April 14. Both games begin at 5 p.m.
