Another season passes, and so does another successful campaign for Matoaca baseball. They cruised to defeat L.C. Bird and then Prince George in the Conference 12 championship game 6-0 to win their second straight district/conference championship, the first under new head coach Tim Haynes.
After a great career at Matoaca Lockett, one of the team’s offensive threats, settled right into a platoon/starting role with the Yellow Jackets at third base. On the season, she hit .275 with a home run and seven RBI.
