Wilson Central first baseman Katie Eakes has been named to The Softball Factory Under Armour National Team. She was one of hundreds of high school softball players from around the country to participate in select combines. The sophomore, who has only been playing softball for two years since switching from basketball, was one of 60 players chosen to the team from tryouts held in eight different cities. She will play on one of four tournament travel teams in Vero Beach, Fla., in June, competing with the nation’s top athletes. She is the daughter of Stant and Wendy Eakes and granddaughter of George and Dora Thomas.
