Oak Grove High School proudly announces that senior softball player Jaina Walden has signed with Marion Military Institute. When asked about the opportunity, Jaina had this to say:
I have been given an amazing opportunity to attend Marion Military Institute on a softball scholarship. I have dedicated my life to achieving this dream. Playing at an early age taught me how to focus myself on pursuing an athletic career. My family and I have had to make many sacrifices to put my dream into motion. I have been through numerous travel teams as a growing athlete to get the exposure I needed in front of college recruits. Once I reached the age to be able to play on a high school team, Coach Benson pushed me to be the best that I can be. It is an honor to be furthering my softball career with him as a mentor and coach. I am very grateful to receive this amazing offer and will use this gift to be the best I can be.
Congratulations Jaina! We can't wait to see you living out this dream on the field next year!
