|Local prep star signs softball scholarship|
Whitney Moore, a former stand-out softball player at West Monroe High School, will move to the next level as she signed last week to play at Southwest Mississippi Community College.
Moore heads to Summit, Miss., immediately to begin preparations for the next academic year as well as the coming softball season. Moore expects to be a pitcher and possibly play some shortstop when her college career begins.
She played for the United States Fastpitch Association's 18U-B Rayville Heat team this season.
That team finished fourth at the World Series in Panama City, Fla. The Heat qualified for the World Series by taking home second-place in the Louisiana state tournament earlier this summer.
The tournament in Panama City was where Southwest coach Patsy Sandifer got her first glimpse of the talent in the arm of Moore.
When the opportunity arose to play at the college level at just a three-hour drive from Ouachita Parish, Moore jumped at the chance following a recruiting process where Sandifer and her staff made the best impression on the Moore family.
"The campus is real pretty," Whitney Moore said. "I went for a visit and just fell in love with it."
Moore had garnered interest from several schools after a breakout junior campaign that saw her take home both All-District 2-5A and 5A All-State first team honors.
Moore has been a local softball star on the dixie youth and on throughout her school days. Moore began playing competitive softball at the age of eight and has not wanted to put her ball and glove down ever since.
Moore recently graduated from West Monroe High School with a 3.5 GPA and an ACT score of 23.
Because of league rules, Southwest is only allowed to sign four out-of-state players. Moore was one of those players that stood out so much that the Mississippi college offered her one of the coveted out-of-state spots on the team.
"Part of what we do at Southwest is push our players to get that degree," Southwest head coach Patsy Sandifer said. "Most of the players we bring in are very academic and that is certainly something that we look for."
Moore will be majoring in biology at Southwest and said she may come back to ULM to work her way toward a degree in the medical field in the future after her time at Southwest.
