LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN -- Amanda English, a senior at Eagle's View Academy (Fla.), has committed to attend Covenant College in the fall of 2014 and play softball for head coach Sara Russell and the Lady Scots.
English's primary position for her high school coach, Cathy Jester, was third base and she batted .322 in her junior season with the Lady Warriors. Her key fielding and batting role for Eagle's View carried over to her travel team, the Florida Storm, under coach Deric Enter, for whom she also played a variety of positions including first, second and right field.
"I chose Covenant because I fell in love with the campus the first time I was up there. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming I felt like I was home," said English. "I chose Covenant softball because of the team, coach Russell, and her husband. After spending time up there with everyone it just felt like a perfect fit!"
English plans to major in Theatre during her time at Covenant.
Russell, along with the coaching staff and team, are pleased to have Amanda English join the Lady Scots for the 2014-15 season.
