Congratulations to our KRKO Russell & Hill Female March 2019 Student Athlete of the Month Iyanla "Ice" DeJesus of Jackson High School. Ice is our only two-time winner of the Russell & Hill Award, winning the honor last year when she was Ice Pennington. On her 18th birthday, Ice asked her step-dad to adopt her, and that she would take his last name. And through all the tears, that's what happened in mid-March. Meanwhile on the field, Ice continues to dominate the Wesco 4A Softball diamond, pitching shutouts and perfect games and hitting multiple home runs, leading the defending State 4A Timberwolves into the 2019 season. DeJesus will take her talents to the east coast next year, having accepted an athletic scholarship to play for the Coastal Carolina University Chanticleers. Jackson Softball Coach is Kyle Peacocke.
