From Odessa high, pitcher/third baseman Kristen Dees and outfielder Janie Campos are both headed to Odessa College to become Lady Wranglers.

"It was close to home, and I've always really appreciated coach Prickett. He has always worked with me on my hitting and stuff, so I kind of felt like it was the right decision" said Dees.

Campos added, "I feel like I've worked really hard. It's something I've done my whole life and going on it's going to be great and I like it."

From Permian, Bailey Blain, a catcher who inked with NAIA Dakota Wesleyan, said it's a sign that all of his hardwork over the years has paid off.

"It means that I get to keep playing. I don't have to hang up my cleats yet thankfully. There are a lot of people that have to so I get to keep playing and keep doing what I love" said Blain.

Permian short stop Caleb Flores signed with Oklahoma Wesleyan, and he said being 8 hours away from home is a little nerve-racking, but he is excited for the opportunity.

"Right now it's just like everything is going by really fast you know. It's just getting ready for the next level and it's what we've been working for our whole lives ya know" said Flores.
