Union Pines outfielder Ross signs with N.C. State softball
Tyler Ross, a senior at Union Pines High School, has signed a softball scholarship with N.C. State, the Wolfpack announced Monday.
"Tyler is a remarkable athlete who will bring power and speed to our outfield," said N.C. State coach Shawn Rychcik. "She has continued to get better every time we have seen her play and will make an impact in the lineup the day she gets on campus" in 2013.
Ross, who is from Cameron, has hit 24 home runs, batted .616 and stolen 118 bases in 124 attempts in three years at Union Pines. The Vikings won the Cape Fear Valley 3-A Conference title the past two seasons, and Ross was voted the league's Player of the Year in both seasons. She batted .621 with 13 home runs as a junior.
Ross made maxpreps.com's Sophomore All-American team in 2011.
