Henderson Hurdle, Georgia Southwestern University Henderson Hurdle has played a huge role in the recent successes of the Mount de Sales softball program. She is a total team player, an outstanding leader on the field, and well-respected by her teammates and coaches. Her positive energy is contagious, and as a result, she helped lead her team to a state championship in 2019 and an area championship this season to finish out her senior year.
Over the last four years, Henderson has been voted GHSA All-Region 1st team and All-State 2nd team each year, and this year, as a senior, she was voted as the GHSA Area 1-A Player of the Year. She is undoubtedly one of the best defensive and offensive players in our area. In her career, she has totaled 297 putouts with a fielding percentage of 91%. This year, she led our team offensively with a batting average of .488 and an on-base percentage of .593, both the highest on our team.

Chloe Nepveux, Palm Beach Atlantic University In her four years at Mount de Sales, Chloe Nepveux has contributed so much to the softball program and has played a huge role in its success. Over the last four years, she has been voted GHSA All-Region each year and All-State her junior year. In her four years at Mount de Sales, she’s pitched a total of 3,078 pitches, had 240 strikeouts, an ERA of 2.73, and an opponent’s batting average of .221.

She had 13 strikeouts, allowed only 2 runs and 5 hits, and threw 76 strikes out of 95 total pitches. Her stellar pitching put us in the driver’s seat heading into the Final 4, which resulted in a state championship title.
Chloe has been successful at the plate, on the mound, and at first base. Her versatility is what makes her such a well-rounded player.
Heartly Nepveux, Piedmont College
When Heartly Nepveux joined the varsity softball team her freshman year, she changed the dynamics of our defense, adding so much skill and talent to the outfield. For the past four years, Heartly has been the leader of our outfield and is notably the best center fielder in our area. Over the last four years, she has been voted GHSA All-Region each year with 105 put outs and a 94% fielding percentage.
Heartly has been very successful at the plate as well. She finished her four years with a .325 on-base percentage and always came through when the team needed her the most. Last year, in our Elite 8 game against Wesleyan, who was 43-0, Heartly lead the 7th inning off with an incredible base hit to left field which was the catalyst for our victory over Wesleyan.
