BROOKSVILLE – Kama Woodall’s first run-scoring single in Saturday night’s Leopard Slam final wasn’t exactly a hard-hit smash. But that would be an apt description for the second time she drove home a teammate.
As she normally does, the Springstead senior made headlines with her arm over the two-day tournament at Tom Varn Park. But she also made an impact with the bat, and has all season.

SPRING HILL – For most of Springstead’s softball team, Wednesday night’s game against Citra-North Marion was the first foray into regional play. But for pitcher Kama Woodall, these high-leverage postseason contests are old hat.
The junior tossed a 1-hitter in the Class 6A, Region II quarterfinal, striking out 12 as the host Lady Eagles cruised to a 6-0 victory.
“We feel great,” Woodall said. “Coming into the season we just wanted to win every game we could. Now that we’ve kind of meshed together this season and made it this far, it’s a pretty big deal for us.

BROOKSVILLE – Kama Woodall had plenty of reason to run out of gas by the time the bottom of the seventh rolled around in Saturday night’s final.
Springstead’s junior pitcher was working on her 14th straight inning of work across two games spanning roughly four hours, yet had somehow managed to dominate a dominant Nature Coast squad.
Oh yeah, and she wasn’t even feeling well, enduring a battle with bronchitis that frequently forced her to step off the mound and cough throughout the game.
