An outstanding DCHS softball outfielder has signed a letter of intent with Trevecca Nazarene University to play collegiate ball after she graduates here.
Megan Walker, a senior, put pen to paper Friday at the DCHS auditorium. Members of Walker’s family, coaches, and fellow players joined her for the occasion.
Trevecca Nazarene University (TNU), founded in 1901, is a private Christian liberal arts college in Nashville and is a member of the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II
“The reason I chose Trevecca is because it’s a small Christian school so I really thought that would be best for what I want to do in my future. Right now I plan to become an Occupational Therapist,” said Walker.
Tigerette Coach Danny Fish said he is very happy that Megan will have a chance to play softball at the collegiate level.
“I am very proud of Megan reaching her goal of going to Trevecca. That is where she wanted to be. She has worked real hard to make that dream a reality,” said Coach Fish.
“Megan is a program changer. She is a great player and not just in one sport. She also plays basketball. Last year we got a little worried about her because she was playing in the Gold Tournament in Texas and suffered an injury and had surgery. She missed all of the basketball season last year and coming back from that injury I would never have thought she would have the impact she did last year in softball but she had a really solid year after her recovery. She has had three solid years so far and I expect her to have a great senior year,” said Coach Fish.
Before she heads off to college, Megan has one more high school softball season in front of her and she is looking forward to it.
“I think we have a lot of potential this year. We lost a lot of good players last year and we need a lot of people to step up into their roles but I think we can definitely do it,” said Walker.
