Last week two of Parkside’s senior athletes, Andrew Smith and Maggie Cannon, signed to different division one colleges, committing to play baseball and softball. Cannon has played varsity softball all four years as a pitcher here at Parkside High, leading her team to victory on many occasions. Maggie is going to continue her academic and softball career at UNCC (University of North Carolina at Charlotte) where she will continue to strike out the competition. Cannon said “I’m very excited to go and play, although I will miss my friends and family being a little over seven hours away but its a great opportunity and I really can’t wait.”  University of North Carolina Charlotte had a great 2017 season with a record of 30 wins and 23 losses, Maggie hopes to help the team and make the 2019 season an even better one.

Smith has also been on varsity baseball all four years of his high school career. Here at Parkside Smith mainly catches but would also pitch for his team. Next year Smith will be attending Towson University, which is also a division one school to catch for the tigers. “I cant wait, playing in college is something I have always wanted to do since I have been little” says Smith. He looks to follow in the footsteps of his older brother Matt Smith who also played baseball at Parkside and Towson University. Towson University also had a good 2016 season with a  record of 20 wins and 34 losses, Smith also hopes to help the tigers win more games in his upcoming 2019 season. Good luck to both Smith and Cannon as they come to their first year of playing college softball and baseball!
