Nettleton senior Makenzie Hawkins signed a softball letter of intent with Jones Junior College on Tuesday.
Hawkins hit .535 this season with five home runs and 51 RBI in helping the Lady Tigers to a fourth straight Class 3A championship series.
She’ll join former teammate Michele Hester at Jones. Hester announced Tuesday she will transfer from Chipola (Fla.) Junior College.
Hester, a former Journal fastpitch player of the year, went 16-3 in her freshman season at Chipola with a 1.67 ERA. She compiled an 82-6 record at Nettleton.
Hawkins, a former Journal slowpitch player of the year, was a part of three straight fastpitch championships and two titles in slowpitch.
