DICKSON — During her time as a Dickson Lady Comets softball player, Jadyn Mckenzie has always been true blue to her school, teammates and those around her.

Tuesday afternoon was no different as she wore blue to make her future official, while adding some red and white to the mix.

Mckenzie officially put pen-to-paper on a National Letter of Intent to play college softball for the Murray State College Lady Aggies in Tishomingo, with the signing taking place at the Dickson High School Gymnasium. 

“This feels amazing and I’m so excited right now,” Mckenzie said. “I honestly have to give so much credit to coach (Kristen) Williams for pushing me every single day and bringing out the best in me. When coach Williams came along then it gave me that extra drive to push forward and it really made me believe that this was possible.”

This season the Lady Comets experienced a surge in their win total as they finished with 16 overall, just narrowly missing the regional tournament.

Mckenzie was a strong part of the Lady Comets success, finishing her senior season with a .242 batting average along with a .489 on base percentage. She also totaled 15 while scoring 20 runs this season.

Mckenzie will be joining several other softball standouts from the area, as she will join Taleigh Nail and Rylee Carter next season, as the two just finished their freshman seasons at MSC, where the Lady Aggies finished with another 20-plus win season.

“I was shocked when I got the offer from Murray State,” Mckenzie said. “When I went and tried out and then they said they wanted me to come play for them, and that’s when it became real for me. Playing for Dickson has meant everything to me, and I’m ready to just show what I’m made of in college.”

Jadyn plans on studying nursing while attending college with the hopes of becoming a medical fight trauma nurse in the future.
