Delta's Panthers were in the driver's seat all season long, finishing first in the 3A WSL and hosting its first-ever regional playoff round.
Helping Delta gain its lofty stature in this year's softball playoffs was senior shortstop Jenna Sutliff. The talented player was second in batting average (.479), first in runs scored (39), tied for fourth in hits with Sami Lane (35), third in RBIs (30) and first in home runs (6) for the Panthers.
Sutliff signed a letter of intent to play softball for Utah State University Eastern in Price, Utah, on Nov. 14.
Sutliff has chosen elementary education as a course of study upon entering school this coming 2019 fall session.
A major reason for choosing Utah State University Eastern was the fact "the way the team and coach made me feel," stated Sutliff. The Eagles' team, "welcoming me and making me a part of their softball family so quick is what ultimately made me realize this was the best fit for me," quoted Sutliff.
"It was the head coach (Coach Smith) and the softball team that had the most influence," said Sutliff.
Naomi and Duane Sutliff are Jenna's parents.
