Fultz, who is a shortstop for Grambling State University, also helped her team defeat Miles College in the River City Classic. She is a 2018 graduate of WC and has equally enjoyed her time at Grambling.

Fultz’s softball coach Nakeya Hall also sees the improvement and dedication that Fultz has for the game.

“She’s a leader on and off the field, she’s one of the players that we rely heavily on and we’re grateful to have her,” Hall said.

Fultz and Lockridge not only got see each other play over the weekend, but they also were able to see their high school coach, Dana McGivney, who came to see them play softball on the next level.

Both ladies are quickly becoming impact players for their colleges and they were able to show off their true skills back at home in the River City Classic.
