|Four Lady Chiefs to play at next level|
Four West Ouachita Lady Chiefs softball seniors recently signed letters of intent to play college softball next spring.
On Thursday, supporters filed into the school library where Meggie Burkett, Jordan Waldroup, Samantha Hamby and Nicole Gross made their college choices official.
Burkett and Waldroup will continue to be teammates after each signed with Louisiana College of Pineville.
Burkett batted .490 with 21 stolen bases last season for West Ouachita. Waldroup was
4-0 with a 0.96 earned-run-average on the mound for the Lady Chiefs a year ago.
She also hit for four doubles, the second most on the team in a quarterfinal run in the playoffs in 2008.
"I like the school a lot," Waldroup said. "It is a great program that finished third in the nation last year. I am real excited to have one of my high school teammates there with me as a roommate, too."
Hamby will play for Central Alabama after going 19-3 with a 1.73 ERA as well as batting .357 with 18 RBI last season. She has been considered one of the top softball pitchers in Northeast Louisiana the past two seasons.
Hamby is looking forward to going to Alexandria City, Ala. and joining a team that she feels she can contribute to immediately.
"They have a great program and a real good school to get an education," Hamby said. "It is not too far away and I am looking forward to playing there next year."
Gross signed with Trinity Valley College in Tyler, Texas. She batted a .460 with six doubles and five triples to go along with a team-high 24 RBI.
"I decided it was not too far from home," Gross said. "They have a great school and I can get a good education."
The Lady Chiefs will be defending their district championship for the fourth consecutive season in 2009. West Ouachita advanced to the third-round of the Class 4A softball tournament last year and returns almost every starter, including their top three pitchers from last season.
