The boys had their fun on National Signing Day. Last Monday night, it was the girls' turn.

The Gold Dome was filled with the St. Amant faithful to see five of their top-tier softball players sign scholarships to play at the next level. It will bring the number of Lady Gators that have gone on to play college softball to 28 since 2000.

Just last season, Kasey Nielson and Brooke Roberts inked letters of intent. Nielson went to Southeastern, and Roberts went to Peal River Community College in Mississippi.

Monday night, Infielder Ali Delany signed with Northwest Florida State College. Delany was a first-team all-district utility player last year as St. Amant went 27-3 during the regular season, won the district title and made a run to the state semifinals.

Like Roberts, pitcher Skylar Cook inked her scholarship to Peal River Community College. Cook went 6-1 last season with a spectacular 0.96 ERA.

Finally, Madison Edmonston, Jordan Hartman and Jaci Lavigne all decided to remain in the state as they signed with LSU-Eunice.

The outfielder Edmonston hit .387 with 13 RBIs last year and was a first-team All-District 5-5A selection.

Infielders Hartman and Lavigne were both second-team all-district selections a season ago.
