Add Cheyenne Mathews to the growing list of North Henderson athletes to make it to the Division 1 collegiate level.
Mathews, who is a 2015 North graduate, made the Western Carolina softball team recently after transferring from Mississippi College for her sophomore year of college.
“I loved the campus and wanted to continue with my softball career a few more years,” Mathews said on her decision. “I’m excited to grow as a softball player and to see how far the team can get. I’m glad I can continue to bleed purple. I will always consider North my home.”
As a Lady Knight, Mathews batted an incredible .532 in her career and set school records in doubles and RBIs.
In her standout career, Mathews was named to the all-conference team multiple times and the North Carolina Softball Coaches Association added her to their all-district and all-state team in her junior and senior seasons in high school.
In her freshman year in college at Mississippi College, Mathews batted .295, had 31 hits, racked up 27 RBIs, blasted 3 home runs and won a NCCAA (National Christian College Athletic Association) Championship with the Choctaws.
