West softball duo to extend softball careers at Southeastern

 SHALLOTTE – West Brunswick High School graduate McKenzie Benton isn’t sure she would’ve played college softball had it not been for a special teammate.

Benton, who helped lead the Trojans to an appearance in the eastern regional finals for the first in program history this spring, will continue her softball career at Southeastern Community College after officially signing a letter of intent to play at the Whiteville junior college last week in West Brunswick’s library.
