Three Grayson County High School senior athletes signed Letters of Intent on Friday to attend Campbellsville University, where they will join the Tiger softball and cross country teams.
Mallory and Emily Akins will join the Tiger softball team following the conclusion of their senior seasons. Both have been members of the Cougar softball squad since their sophomore years.
On hand for the signing representing head coach Shannon Wathen was assistant coach Bryce White, who said the Tiger program is on the rise after reaching the NAIA World Series three years ago behind the pitching of another Grayson County standout, Victoria Decker.
Crawford follows the footsteps of his older brother, Brett, who is currently in his second season running for the Tigers. Both Crawfords won 3rd Region Cross Country individual titles while running for the Cougars.
Tiger coach Hillary Lakes and assistant Dylan Ford were in the GCHS library for the signing. Ford was enthusiastic about the Tiger program and about signing another top runner after finishing third in the nation this past season.
