GREENVILLE — Greenville senior Skylar Fletcher signed her letter of intent on May 5 in between the double header at Stebbins Field. Fletcher will be playing college softball at Mount St. Joseph’s University.
Fletcher said it was a relatively easy recruitment process. With the helped she received, it was an easy decision.
“It was pretty easy. They went and watched me play a couple of times and I had the help of my coaches behind me that helped give me what I needed,” Fletcher said.
Last season, Fletcher was a member of the All-MVL Second Team playing in the outfield. In her Greenville career so far, Fletcher has a .461 batting average with 86 RBI and 112 runs.
Greenville softball head coach Jerrod Newland said Fletcher has what it takes to compete for playing time early. Her on the field skills can help her see some early action. But her intangibles can help her see a lot of playing time early.
“Skylar has some amazing leadership skills from the classroom, to work and the field. She is a well-rounded individual who is way ahead of her time in work ethic and attention to detail,” Newland said.
Fletcher said she is looking forward to a new experience and meeting new people. She’s ready to play at the collegiate level with a new group of teammates in a new conference.
“Just meeting new people. Getting to experience a new softball team, new coaching, environment and everything like that. I’m just excited for it all,” Fletcher said.
While at Mount St. Joseph’s, Fletcher plans to dual major in special education and early childhood education.
