Last Tuesday morning, 3 of North Desoto’s Spring sport athletes signed Letters of Intent to continue their academic and athletic careers on the college level!
From the Baseball Team, Right Handed Pitcher Braden Richardson pledged the beginning of his collegiate career to the Hinds Community College Bulldogs in Raymond, Mississippi. He is one of the catalysts for the Griffins last year that made it to Sulphur for the Semifinals in the LHSAA playoffs last season. He’s looking to continue his undefeated high school record this season as he has not logged a loss as a pitcher in his High School career.
From the State Champion Lady Griffins softball program, both Aly Delafield and Cameron Curtis who have been playing together for 10 plus years and have helped bring North Desoto 2 consecutive state championships are both taking their talents to Northwestern State University in Natchitoches.
Aly is a pitcher and infielder that last year came back from a broken kneecap that sidelined her for 6 plus weeks. Aly is a two time All-District, All-Area and All State Team Member due to her dominance at the plate as well from the circle. She is following the footsteps of her older sister Emma that also played at Northwestern, as well as sister Elizabeth that played at Arkansas-Monticello.
Cameron Curtis, who has also placed in state as a Powerlifter, made the decision to state close to home due to her having younger siblings still at North Desoto. Cameron is a 2 time All-District Player from her outfield position but has the talent and the determination to play anywhere on the diamond that her college coaches deem fit.
Congratulations to Our Griffins for making this very important decision to represent the Griffins in the next phase of their education!
