Sydnee Goodson –Excelling on the court, diamond and in the classroom

  • Published in Sports

Sydnee Goodson is a junior at Marianna High School. She has been on a diamond since she was five years old and can’t imagine not being there.  At five and six she played tee ball, changing to coach pitch baseball when she was seven.  At age eight, she transitioned to softball and fell in love with the sport.  Nine years later, the love is still there.  Since that time, she has added volleyball and once again, she found a new love.  With all that being said, Sydnee never lost sight of the big picture.  Academics have always come first.

Sydnee maintains a 3.96 GPA (grade point average), while playing two sports for five years.  She is an active member in the Beta Club, National Honor Society, and Juniorettes.  She is dual enrolled at Chipola College, adding six college hours to her resume on top of her already full schedule.  

Her accolades on the volleyball court, she excelled three years at Marianna Middle School.  Her seventh and eighth grade years, she was awarded the Best Server Award.  Her eighth grade year she was also awarded MVP.  

The awards did not stop on the court but moved to the diamond where she was named Defensive Player of the Year for seventh and eighth grade, as well as MVP and Captain award in eighth grade.  

Moving to the high school had no adjustments for Sydnee.  She was an integral part of both the junior varsity and varsity softball team and the varsity volleyball team.  She was name MVP of the MHS junior varsity softball team her freshman year.  

Looking back on her years of playing and her most memorable game, Sydnee says, “The game against Chipley when I hit a walk off double for us to win the game, it was great.”  

Sydnee wasted no time in saying her favorite subject was math and her favorite math teachers, “Mr. Goodwin (Jamie) and Mr. Tocci (Bennett), I couldn’t pick just one.  I had Mr. Goodwin in fifth grade and them Mr. Tocci in sixth and seventh.”

Sydnee knows readily she is blessed to be where she is in life, “I have to thank God and my parents.  They have always been there for me.”

Accolades from teachers are nonstop.  Tocci says of her, “Sydnee was an awesome student, very bright, and extremely well mannered.  I could teach till I was 100 if all my students were half the person she is.  My pleasure to have had her in the classroom for two years.”

Coach Scott Wiggins at Marianna High School says, “Sydnee is a great young lady on and off the field, always gives her best!  It is a pleasure to be her coach.”  

Danielle Baggett coached Sydnee for two years at Marianna High School, “I have coached her two years now and have been amazed at the outstanding job her parents have done with her. She works hard on and off the court. Sydnee has a wonderful heart, great morals, and is such a positive presence. She always gives 110% and genuinely cares whether it’s about school, family, friends, or athletics. She has helped me to continuously step my own game up to become a better coach for her. Sydnee just has that effect on people and doesn’t even realize it.”

Jamie Goodwin taught her math in fifth grade, “The great thing about Sydnee is that you are always going to get her best.  She doesn’t know anything else.  She’s very driven in everything she does, whether it’s sports or school.  It’s easy to teach a kid like Sydnee.  Teaching kids like her make teaching fun.”

Congratulations to Sydnee Goodson on her accomplishments in her short life time. The Jackson County Times will be watching for big things to come.

The Bulldog golf team is ready to challenge for another district title under the leadership of Tyler Wilson.  Four district titles in a row proved to be pretty sweet for Wilson and his team that included four standout seniors but this year’s team wants to make it number five.  Those seniors lost to graduation included Kiley Bryan, Avery Evans, Steve Spence, and Aaron Williams.  

This year, the Bulldogs will have Ric Gable, Will Johnson, and Tanner Mulder representing the senior class.  The junior class will be Henry Knowles, Hunter Mitchell, Tristan Mulder, Ethan Sapp, Dante Sonaglia, and Nick Walker.

Sophomore class is small but ready to make an impression with Corey Akerson and Will Saunders.  The freshman class is looking for success from Ben Knowles, Austin Malloy, and John Mitchell.  

The Lady Bulldogs will be represented by Jordan Sapp and Annika Beebe. 

Coach Wilson is optimistic about this year’s team, “They’re eager to learn, they have been playing on their own which is always a good thing.  The three seniors have been on these courses before and that always is a plus.  The juniors are pretty good and I think we are going to be competitive.”  

As for the girls, Wilson says, “They like the game, and show promise of being ready to compete.”

The Bulldogs will open up August 23 in Holmes County with a 3:30 tee off before returning home to Indians Springs Golf Course on August 25 with a 12 noon tee time.
