The grind never stops for high school athletes.
UIL high school softball hasn’t been played since spring break and Travis softball star Madysin Leighton still found a place to play at the college level.
The University of Houston-Victoria announced on Friday that Leighton has signed with the Jaguars.
Leighton of Richmond, earned first team all-district honors and all-area honors as a sophomore and junior in the outfield. She was also lettered in academics all four years in high school and was named academic all-district as a sophomore and junior.
“I chose to attend UHV because it’s close to home and I really like the environment that UHV provides for students,” said Leighton.
Leighton plans to study psychology while attending UHV.
Lindsey Ferguson-Ortiz is the head coach of UH-Victoria softball.
