"They're a great team and they always do things together like at Jones. And, I would like to be a part of that," said Hagwood.
Byrd said "I'm going into coaching and secondary education, and they have one of the best programs for that. And, their softball team is good. So, I hope to contribute and help them win for the next two years."
