CHARLES TOWN – Washington High School’s Kylie Condon is officially a Ram after signing with the Shepherd softball team on Tuesday.

Condon, a multi-year varsity starter, has excelled in her time as a Patriot. In just two years, she’s managed a .430 batting average and a .460 on base percentage. Condon has stepped up to the plate 174 times for a total of 158 times at bat, securing 68 hits, 44 runs and 48 RBIs. Condon also totals 16 doubles, six triples and two home runs – both in her junior season. Additionally, she has reached base off balls 12 times, been struck out 11 times, and has been left on base 79 times.

In the field, Condon has participated in 163 defensive plays for a total of 48 putouts and 102 assists while only making 13 errors. She has also made nine double plays, five last year and four in her sophomore year.

Compared to the 2018 national averages for batting, OBP, hitting, RBIs, runs and fielding percentage, Condon exceeds in all categories.

Condon has seen the state tournament in both years with Washington. The 17th ranked Patriots’ 2018 season ended on May 23 when the girls first fell to No. 8 John Marshall before losing to No. 6 George Washington in the redemption game later that day. In 2017 the Patriots were first defeated by the top dog Hurricane Redskins before being knocked out of the tournament by No. 16 George Washington in Game 4.

“I am very proud of Kylie, not only for her decision to extend her playing career at Shepherd, but also for her hard work and dedication over the last four years,” head coach Amanda Orkoskey said. It has been a pleasure to watch her mature and grow into the young woman and player she is today.  She will surely be missed; however, we aren’t done with her yet. We are all looking forward to this season with the leadership of our senior class.”

The Patriots kick off their 2019 season on March 9 with a scrimmage against Sherando (Va.).
