Softball standout Hyson now at Chesapeake

The spring softball season is still far away, but it can already be said that perennial state power Chesapeake-AA will stay that way.

The Cougars graduated Lauren Gibson, a two-time All-Metro Player of the Year, a four-time All-Metro pitcher who led them to two state titles.

Filling the void will be junior Megan Hyson, who transferred from Seton Keough after leading the Gators to the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference.

Hyson, a first-team All-Metro selection, went 14-0 with a 0.00 ERA last year, allowing just nine hits all season.

Like Gibson, Hyson also is a catalyst at the plate, hitting .390 with 15 RBIs last season for the Gators.

You are absolutely correct about Megan. She is the most advanced pitcher I have ever seen or coached at this stage of her career. Chesapeake will remain a power in the county because of Megan.
