Logan High School is known for producing a weath of talent on the softball diamond.
With a good youth feeder program and good middle school and high school teams, the Logan area always seems to end up being a softball factory.
Many of the Logan girls wind up playing collegiately.
One of those is Katie Chyrssofos.

This season for the 17-28 Tigers, Chyrssofos hit .318 — the third highest batting average on the team. She ended up with team highs in home runs with nine and in RBI with 32. Chyrssofos also had six doubles, one triple and two stolen bases. She started 37 games and made 38 game appearances.
Chyrssofos only struck out 16 times in 107 official plate appearances and had a total of 34 base hits.
Katie Mangold led Salem with a .407 average. Bre’Ana Felix was second with a .331 clip.
Former Logan softball player and junior infielder Jessica Bias also played in one game this season at Salem.
Salem ended the season with a 1-2 showing in the G-MAC Softball Championships in early May at Vienna. The Tigers beat Cedarville 7-4, then were ousted with a pair of losses to Kentucky Wesleyan (9-4) and Davis & Elkins (10-2).
Chryssofos had a successful softball career at Logan from 2009-12 and hit more than 30 home runs. She helped lead LHS to the state tournament each year.
