LEBANON, Tenn. – Cumberland softball coach Heather Stanfill announced the signing of Station Camp’s Christina Manis and Macon County’s Chandra Brooks to scholarship papers this week. Manis and Brooks are the third and fourth signees for the Bulldogs for the 2009-10 academic year.
 
Manis has lettered in cross country, track and softball at Station Camp High School and was a member of the school-record 4x100 and 4x200-meter relay teams as a freshman and sophomore. The Bisons won region titles in cross country four straight years and Manis garnered First Team All-County as a senior.
 
The Hendersonville, Tenn., native posted the highest on-base percentage on the softball team the past three seasons and was named to the All-Academic Team in 2008 and Honorable Mention in 2006.
 
Brooks has been an award-winning pitcher at Macon County the past three years, racking up 24 no-hitters and earning All-District accolades as a sophomore and junior. She posted 230 strikeouts in one season as well.
 
Manis and Brooks join Mt. Juliet’s Megan Lavery and White House’s Emily Nicholson in the signing class for next season.
