LAUREL HILL — When first meeting Nichole Bailey, you’ll notice that the Laurel Hill senior softball player is polite but soft-spoken.

On the softball diamond, the Hobo left fielder lets her bat do the talking.

Bailey led Laurel Hill in hitting last season, posting a .444 average.

Tuesday, she signed scholarship papers to play softball for Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia, Ala., where she will reunite with former Laurel Hill pitcher Kasey Harrison, a Saints infielder.

The big selling point for Wallace is its proximity to Laurel Hill, Bailey said.

“It’s close to home and it’s where I felt comfortable going,” she said.
