COLUMBUS- Columbus high student Alayna Allen signed her letter of intent Wednesday to go play softball in college for NECC.
A standout pitcher here locally at CHS, Allen is very excited to play college softball and can’t wait to learn more in the classroom.
“Their criminal justice is one of the best programs I’ve seen. I feel like with their program they have, I feel like I will get more out of it than anywhere else,” said Allen.
NECC softball coach Iris Woodhead is thrilled to add a quality pitcher like Allen, and thinks she will be a great fit with her team.
“Last year we had the highest team GPA on campus. Those are the type of players and student-athletes that I absolutely look for. Anytime I can ask a student-athlete or potential recruit which program they want to go in, and they know the answer right away, which was Alayna, it is someone that I am very interested in,” said Woodhead.
With the eagerness that Allen shows for both softball and learning, it’s easy to tell that her future is very bright.
