Winning a scholarship is a big enough thrill, but winning it along with a family member is extra special. Judson softball players Jordan and Hailey Goins are twin sisters who have been terrific members of the Lady Rockets Softball Team were recently notified that they both have been awarded "The Top Gun Invitational" scholarship. Both Jordan and Hailey worked diligently in completing the applications in the spring and met the expectations with their athletics, academics and community service.
