AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - The Chaps softball team added a new center fielder to their roster next season, a speedster from Tascosa High. Makenna Hall signed her national letter of intent at Tascosa’s softball field, surrounded by teammates, friends and family.
LCU liked the four-year varsity outfielder’s skills at stopping balls and keeping runners from advancing bases, but she’s also good at bat. So far this season, Hall has hit a .562 batting average. She chose LCU because it’s close to home and the atmosphere makes it fun to play.
”I chose Lubbock Christian because I love Coach Hays and the atmosphere at Lubbock Christian,” said Hall. “It’s a family and everyone is going to be there for you. I love the field. It’s beautiful. It’s turf like this and I love the turf. The atmosphere at the field too is amazing.”
Hall became the second softball player at Tascosa to play college ball in nearly 10 years. She joins Jordynn Corea who played for Tascosa and signed with McPherson College in 2016.
