Heather Bryant, a sophomore infielder on the Southwest softball team, has signed a letter of intent to continue her education and softball career at Mid-Continent University in Mayfield, Kentucky.

“I’m very happy for Heather and the opportunity she is getting at Mid-Continent. She is a very hard worker both on the field and in the classroom,” said Southwest head coach Keith Gentry. “Mid-Continent is not only getting a good softball player but a quality person as well.”

Bryant, who is in her second season with the Lady Saluqis, came to Southwest from Brighton High School in Brighton, Tennessee. A two-year starter at third base and shortstop for Southwest, Bryant is currently batting .277 and leads the team in doubles with five. In the Lady Saluqis’ win over Coahoma Community College on Tuesday, Bryant hit a grand slam home run, her first round-tripper of the season and the second of her career. As a freshman, Bryant batted .276 with one home run, nine doubles, and nine runs batted in. In addition to her exploits on the field, Bryant is an excellent student and a member of the Lady Saluqis’ 3.0 GPA club.
