Char-Houston's Spossey leaves state

When it comes to Chartiers-Houston softball, apparently Toni Spossey isn't the heir apparent to Kayla Briggs.

As I learned within the past few days, and confirmed tonight, sophomore catcher/pitcher Toni Spossey has moved, along with her family, to North Carolina.

Spossey, who transferred from Trinity back in January, was ruled ineligible for half the year, appealed and won, gaining eligibility for the Bucs' playoff run to the WPIAL Class AA semifinals and the PIAA first round.

Spossey started out as a catcher but moved into the pitching circle when Briggs was lost late in the season with a minor shoulder injury.

She wound up hitting .475 in 40 at-bats with 10 RBI and 13 runs. Spossey was clearly a talented pitcher and had no trouble competing on the season's biggest stage, hence the All-District selection.

Guess we'll never know how she would have stacked up given an entire season. I'm told the move was very much family-related and family-motivated.
