Nichole Bailey signs with Wallace

Published: Friday, January 18, 2013 at 03:20 PM.

Bailey has dreamed of playing college softball since she was in the sixth grade.

And just what attracted her to the game?

“The teamwork and the teammates,” she said, “and the connections you get with other people.”

She said the Saint coaches haven’t decided where she will play, and won’t do so until she joins the team in the fall.

It didn’t take Bailey long to impress the Wallace coaching staff during a recent tryout, Hobo softball coach Scott Varnum said.

“She had a good showing when she went up there,” he said. “She hit the ball really well and had a good hitting performance for her tryout.”

That Bailey put the bat on ball didn’t surprise Varnum.
