Greenbrier's Brianna Butler is a Co-Pitcher of the Year on the All-Region 2-AAAAA Softball Team. Butler finished the season with a mark of 25-6.

It was another great year for softball teams in Region 2-AAAAA with three, Houston County High School, Greenbrier and Jones County, finishing second through fourth, respectively, in the 2015 Class
AAAAA state tournament.

In the Columbia County/Richmond County subregion, it was also one of the most competitive years with teams fighting to the end for a region tournament spot.

Not unexpectedly, Greenbrier senior shortstop Kirsten McMonigle was Region 2-AAAAA Co-Player of the Year. She batted .500, stole 33 bases in 34 attempts, scored 52 runs, drove in 29 and had 10 doubles, five triples and two home runs with an on-base-percentage of .564. Greenbrier sophomore Brianna Butler was Co-Pitcher of the Year with a 25-6 mark.
