UPDATE: ICC signs Mooreville standout Mitchell

By ICC Media Relations

Mooreville’s Laura Mitchell is the latest Itawamba Community College softball signee. Lady Indians head coach Chad Case signed the second-team all-area pick by the Daily Journal after the right-handed pitcher led the Lady Troopers with a 17-6 mark on the hill with a 2.20 ERA. Mitchell made the all-division team the last two seasons and was a Northeast Mississippi All-Star selection this year.

“Laura had a super senior season and helped her team make a very deep run in the playoffs,” said Case, who is set to begin his third season at the helm of the softball program at ICC. “We’re so excited to have Laura in our family and we expect her to come in here and help us out immediately.”

Mitchell was credited with 17 of Mooreville’s 21 victories this past spring and she follows another former Lady Troopers star, Rachel Tally, who signed last summer with Itawamba and started nearly every game this past spring at ICC and helped the Lady Indians capture a school record 30 victories.
