Former Lee County softball star and 2007 Herald Player of the Year Sam Posey, far right, races home and into the arms of her elated teammates last Thursday after belting a walk-off, solo home run in the bottom of the 11th inning to lift Valdosta State past Augustana during the Division II National Championship Tournament and keep their season alive after the No. 1 seed Lady Blazers were stunned in their opener a day earlier and had to fight their way out of the losers’ bracket. Valdosta State then won four straight games to capture the school’s first national title. (Valdosta State University/Special to The Herald)

Former Lee County softball star Sam Posey played hero for Valdosta State last week when she kept the Lady Blazers’ season alive with an 11th-inning, walk-off HR that propelled them to their first national title two days later, adding another chapter to the growing legend that is the Posey last name.
