WC softball grooms seven to extend diamond careers


Five of the Weatherford College girls have committed to NCAA Division II schools, with two accepting to D-1’s.

Schools looking for premier sluggers among the Coyotes batting order on this team hit pay dirt. Catcher Kortney Koroll, with 16 homers and a .929 slugging percentage will head to San Marcos next year to play at Texas State University. With 11 round-trippers each and 42 RBIs apiece, Luci Ponce and Katy Vandewater committed to Texas Woman’s University and Midwestern State University, respectively. All three sports batting averages above the .400 mark.

Pitcher Kylee Studioso, certainly no slouch at the plate, will take her arm to the circle at the University of Arkansas. Studioso currently sports a 1.92 earned-run average and has fanned 125 batters this season. The strike-out number would be higher if the WC offense was not quite so prolific at ending games early.

In WC’s outfield corps, combining hitting acumen with speed on the base paths, Aledo High grad Carolyn Clayton chose to sign with Arkansas’ Harding University and Samantha Alegria will also head to Denton to join Ponce at Texas Women’s University. Both outfielders hit in the high .300’s with nearly 40 RBIs each. 

Emily Ditmore, an Azle High ex who was the inaugural signee to Weatherford College, has been productive since joining the Coyotes. She plays first base and has also taken up slack in the circle. Ditmore has inked her intentions with the University of Central Oklahoma.

After putting together impressive streaks in the conference slate, WC softball took its first double header loss on Wednesday, an event the WC women did not take well, according to Williams.

“It was an humbling experience for the girls, taking those two losses to McLennan,” she said. “ They were devastated and really took it hard, which I was really happy to see.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
