During the recent signing period, a number of players from the Mount Pleasant Softball program signed letters to play at the collegiate level. The hard work and dedication that enabled these young ladies to be outstanding high school players has earned them the opportunity to advance both their athletic and academic careers. While we look forward to big things from these ladies in their last high school season, we can go ahead and wish them the best of luck as they face new challenges and embrace new opportunities at the collegiate level.
