Exeter-Milligan Senior Georgia Meyer has signed a letter of intent play softball next year at Central Community College in Columbus.
Meyer a four year player for the Fillmore Central/Exeter-Milligan/Friend softball team hadn’t planned to continue her softball career beyond high school but it didn’t take much to convince her to commit to CCC once the opportunity was presented.
“I feel like the smaller school will be a better transition for me. I am excited about the opportunity to continue playing softball.”
FC/EM/F Assistant Coach Lorie Sliefert has watched Meyers continued development as a catcher for the Panthers. According to Sliefert Meyer will do well at the college level, “She’s had to play with teammates from several different schools so she should be able to meld into any team.”
“Georgia is more about the team than her own stats. I hope she has a good experience,” added Sliefert.
She hopes to slide into a catcher or infield position for the Raiders this fall. She will “miss her teammates, I’ve known and played with them all of my life. We’ve grown up together.”
At CCC Meyer plans to enter the Academic Transfer program focusing on biology.
