Pitt Community College’s solid softball recruiting class got even stronger last week when Wilson Fike High School’s Amber Miller agreed to play for the Bulldogs in 2008.
Miller is the second Fike player to sign with PCC for next season. Pitt coach Junior Bailey signed the Golden Demons’ April Langley in February.
Wilson Fike softball coach Brent Pearson says Miller has been a leader on the field for his team, both in her actions and vocally. A catcher for the Golden Demons, she is batting .372 from the cleanup spot on a team that is 7-6 overall, 4-2 in the All-NEW Six Conference.
Miller says she is excited about the challenge of college academics and becoming a member of the Pitt softball program. She says she is ready to meet her future teammates and play her best for the Bulldogs.
For their part, Miller’s parents, Rodney and Tonia, say they look forward to seeing their daughter mature as a player and as a person as she learns to balance sports and academics in college.
With the signing of Miller and D.H. Conley’s Sam Hulon last week, Bailey now has eight new players poised to join a Pitt program that featured the National Junior College Athletic Association’s top hitter in Nicole Jordan and finished the 2007 regular season 13-21-1 overall, 7-13 in the Region X Conference.
