    Watch sensation Natalie Clemmons from Northern Guilford..3 A all conference and honorable mention for all area and nominated to the state games..but didn’t the state games due to schedule conflicts…she has done all of this as a freshman and is only 15 yrs old. She had 38 rbi’s and 4 homeruns in high school…she plays on a travel team that is # 1 on the east coast. She played on a college rec team this summer and was hitting the ball to the fence on college pitchers. She is the leading hitter on all three teams. She plays 3rd base and short stop…and has a cannon for a arm. College coaches have already come to see her in action.
