Softball adds Sweat to Recruiting Class

HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Coker College softball coach David Hanna announced today that Dallas Sweat (Latta, S.C.) will play for the Cobras.

"We are excited about the addition of Dallas to our program," said Hanna. "She is an excellent addition to our class that will strengthen our team and help us compete."

Sweat hails from nearby Latta High School where she was a two-sport athlete in softball and cross country. In softball she was a two-time all-state and all-region selection; in cross country Sweat won the coaches' award and served as team captain. She is expected to compete at first base for the Cobras.
