Former Dodge County High School (DCHS) Lady Indian softball star, Adele Harrison has agreed to join the University of Georgia (UGA) softball team. She has starred with Middle Georgia State College (MGSC) the last two years where she was all conference both years.
Harrison was a big star for the Lady Indians as she was all-region in 2007, 2009 and 2010. She was honorable mention in 2008. She made the North-South All-Star team in 2010 and was named Georgia Dugout Club Elite 80. Her career batting average of .413 is third in the school’s history. She is the all time DCHS leader in hits with 172, walks with 41 and stolen bases with 101. Her stolen bases are 12th in the state history books.
As a freshman at MGSC she hit a strong .412 and made first year all-conference team. She improved her sophomore season to a .420 and led the conference with 81 hits and seven triples. The seven triples were tied for sixth in the nation. Once again she was named first all-conference and she was named to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) all tournament first team. She was also named an Academic All American.
The University of Georgia expressed interest in Harrison following her sophomore season at MGSC. She decided to go for a visit and she will be part of the program beginning in the fall. She will graduate from Middle Georgia State College with a pre-med associates degree this summer and will major in biology at UGA. Harrison will join a strong Georgia program that advanced to the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) tournament this past season. The Lady Dogs made the national championship series a few years ago.
Harrison is the daughter of Steve Harrison and Rita Llop of Eastman and has a younger brother, JoJo.
