Coach Leigh White expects her Pearl River Community College’s 2014 softball recruiting class to have an immediate impact when the 2015 season rolls around.
The list includes a pair of out-of-state pitchers, as many as five infielders and some speedy outfielders.
“We think this is one of our better recruiting classes since we have been here,” said White. “Some of them will help us right away, especially on the mound. Some of them have good speed. They are not just outstanding pitchers but they can help us as hitters, too.”
The two pitchers include Skylar Cook of St. Amant High School in Gonzalez, La., and Samantha Gill of Mount Dora High School in Mount Dora, Fla. Cook spent her summer playing for the LA Maniax and Gill plays her summer ball with the Central Florida Eagles.
The signing class of outfielders includes Branda Northrup of Poplarville, Cassandra Rosser of d’Iberville and Shannon Massey of Magnolia Heights High School in Senatobia.
The signing class of infielders or utility players are Katherine Davis and Alyssa Cronich of d’Iberville, Mikayla Walley of Greene County High, Whitney Smith of West Harrison High School and Mary Grace Key of Leake Academy.
