New coach White inks 5 softballers

EDMOND — Central Oklahoma interim head softball coach Cody White added four state high school standouts and a junior college All-American to the program during the early signing period that ended recently.

Inking with the Bronchos were utility player Shelby Carel of Tuttle High School, first baseman-catcher Bre’ Davis of Piedmont High School, infielder Morgan Heard of Carl Albert and pitcher-infielder Kensley Selman of McAlester High School along with Northeastern Oklahoma A&M pitcher Kaitlin Davis.

“We’re thrilled to have these young ladies join our program and look forward to getting them on campus next year,” said White, who helped lead UCO to its first national championship last spring. “They’re all outstanding players who have a chance to step in and help us right away.”

Carel was a three-time All-Conference selection at Tuttle, earning All-Region and All-State honors as an outfielder this fall. She’s also a basketball-track standout for the Tigers.

Bre’ Davis earned All-District, All-Regional and All-State honors as a senior this fall at Piedmont. She was a state placer in both the shot put and discus as a junior last spring.

Heard was a four-year starter at Carl Albert, finishing her stellar career with a .417 average that included 23 doubles, 17 triples, 12 home runs, 107 runs batted in and 61 stolen bases. She helped lead the Titans to three Class 5A state championships and was an All-State pick as a senior this fall.

Selman spent her freshman season at Savanna High School before starring for McAlester the last three years, batting .407 with a 1.82 ERA for her career. She was an All-District pick and Alternate All-State selection as a senior for the Lady Buffs.

Kaitlin Davis, a right-handed hurler originally from Springdale (Ark.) High School, enjoyed a sensational freshman season at NEO last year in leading the Lady Norse to a 44-11 record and seventh-place national finish.

She went 28-6 in the circle with a 1.48 earned run average and 173 strikeouts to earn All-Region and third-team All-America honors. Davis earned all eight NEO wins in the postseason as the Lady Norse won the regional and district titles before going 2-2 at the NJCAA National Tournament.

The Bronchos have 12 players returning from last year’s record-setting 51-11 team that won the school’s first women’s national championship.
