MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. - With the onset of inclement weather this weekend, the Georgia College & State University softball program has pushed back their skills clinic one week to Saturday, Jan. 24.

Cost is $75 for one session with the discounted rate of $100 for both. The clinic is open to high school juniors and seniors.

The Bobcat softball team is coming off another NCAA Tournament appearance in 2008, also picking up the first Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Tournament Championship in program history. The Bobcats tallied the third-most wins in school history at 40-14 and reached as high as No. 2 in the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Rankings. Georgia College also pulled home a pair of All-American honors, as pitcher Mandy Chandler (Covington, Ga.) was chosen to the Daktronics team, while outfielder Sherquita Bostick (Florence, S.C.) added to her PBC Player of the Year honor with an NFCA All-America nod. Chandler also earned Academic All-America honors, the first player to receive both honors during the same season in school history.
