New Digital Scoreboard St. Clairsville Girls Softball
Thursday, April 29, 2021
In 1973, seventeen area girls competed as part of the new Girls Softball Team at St. Clairsville High School. St. C girls competed in and won their first tournament in 1975 against Wheeling High School. In 1977, St. C Schools presented their first ever Girls Softball MVP award to Barb Gessel. Recently, the St. C Girls Team opened their season in their newly renovated St. C field, complete with a new digital scoreboard provided by Unified Bank.
St C Softball competes in the OVAC Class 4A each year. They are also members of the Buckeye 8 Conference. Typically, there are about 15-20 girls on the Team each season. When Unified Bank leadership learned that the Team didn’t have a functioning scoreboard, they decided they would help. Working with Luke Nelson, St. C Athletic Director, a new digital scoreboard was obtained and installed at the field.
"Working in conjunction with Unified Bank has been a real pleasure and we are extremely grateful to Unified Bank for their willingness to help serve our student-athletes and families. This project has delivered the first digital scoreboard to our softball field. This addition is very important in supporting the student-athletes, coaches, and fans. It's very nice to know what the score, inning, and ball/strike count is when you attend a game. We haven't had that for quite a while at the field. I am so impressed and appreciative of this new project and the great benefits it brings to St.C,” said Luke Nelson, Athletic Director.
