Jordan Haas and Danielle King, bot seniors at Patrick County High School, recently signed their letters of intent to play softball for the Lady Patriots at Patrick Henry Community College.
“I decided to sign at Patrick Henry Community College because the coaching staff was outstanding at helping me out on certain issues dealing with softball. They are amazing coaches and provide excellent support for the team. I enjoyed talking to everyone there, and they already made me feel as if I was a part of their family. It means a great deal to me for being selected to represent PHCC in the spring. The program that I signed for is one of a kind, and I am thrilled to be a part of it,” Haas said.
The decision to play college softball was personal for King.
“I started playing around the age of 7. Ever since I was a little girl, it was my dad and my dream for me to play college softball. I lost my dad about 6 years ago, and softball has made me feel the closest to him, even though he is gone. So, signing with PH meant everything to me. I chose PH because everyone is like family down there, and it was also close to home,” King said.
