Porter’s Chapel Academy has retired softball player Hannah Embry’s No. 16 jersey.
Embry has been the starting pitcher for the Eagles since she was in 7th grade and she led them to much success over the years. Besides pitching, she led the Eagles in batting this year with .544 average, with 14 doubles, five triples, 28 RBIs and 32 runs scored.
In 2017 and 2018, Embry was named the Midsouth Association of Independent Schools District 5 3A pitcher of the year. The following year, she helped the Eagles to a South State Championship as a junior and was looking forward to a great 2020 senior season until COVID-19 cut the season short.
Embry recently finished her final season with the Eagles after playing on the varsity level since she was 12 years old. She finished her varsity career with 127 wins, 886 innings pitched, 840 strikeouts, defensive average of .940, 167 RBIs and a .512 batting average.
Embry’s Jersey was retired after the 2019 season because this year was cut short. She is set to play college softball at Pearl River Community College where she received a scholarship in November.See a typo? Report it here.
