Meigs County softball standout Aubrey Reed signs with Toledo

Posted

Aubrey Reed, a senior at  Meigs County High School, celebrated her 18th birthday by signing a National Letter of Intent  Friday with the University of Toledo.

Reed is a two-time state champion at Meigs County High School who hopes to capture a third state championship in 2011.

Reed has been the Lady Tigers’ starting catcher since her freshman year. She finished out her 2017 softball season with a .574 batting average, nine home runs, five triples, 17 doubles, 65 RBIs, and 58 runs scored while breaking a team record with most single hits in a season with 78.

At the 2017 State tournament in Murfreesboro, Reed also set a state record with TSSAA with most runs scored in a tournament, and also had three home runs. Reed was first team Best of Preps and was also awarded the  Tennessee Sports Writers Association award and the TSCA All-State Academic and All-State Team Awards.

Reed’s love for softball started when she was just a small girl. She joined the Fury travel team. The Fury organization, based out of Chattanooga, is the place Reed has called her home since 2009. She is the longest tenured player ever to come through the Fury program.

The catcher started Fury’s first 10-under team and will now be finishing her 18-under season this summer, before leaving for college.
