During her 16 year career she has been assisted by coach Donna Farmer while amassing more than 320 wins. She has seen three Panthers earn their way into the MHSAA record books for hitting. The first Panther in the MHSAA record books for career home runs was Madison Cooper. Cooper played from 2010 - 2013 and held the western high school career home run record with 24. This record held up until last season when Taylor Nichols finished her career with 26 home runs. She is now also in the MHSAA record books.
