Kelly Swope has signed a letter of intent to join the Owens Community College softball program.
The Rossford High School senior saw time at first base for the Bulldogs, who advanced to the district semifinals this past year before falling to third-ranked Archbold. In that game, Swope had a two-run single that tied the game at three in the third inning before Archbold eventually won.
During her time at Rossford, Swope was named First Team All-Northern Buckeye Conference (NBC), Second Team All-NBC, Second Team All-District, Honorable Mention All-District and Honorable Mention All-Ohio. She was also a recipient of the team's four-year award under the tutelage of head coach Tom Kralovic.
Swope becomes the sixth member of next year's freshmen class as she joins Lauren Yates (RHP, Springfield H.S.), Cassidy Rolf (IF, Eastwood H.S.), Bre Buck (OF/RHP, Springfield H.S.), Samantha Fowls (RHP, Maumee H.S.) and Jacey Gray (OF, Springfield H.S.).
