Dillon pair sign to play Division I softball

The early signing period continues with high school athletes across the Pee Dee and Grand Strand signing national letters of intent.

Dillon had a pair of Division I softball signees. Shayna Covington inked with Winthrop and Tara Grimsley signed to join Western Carolina University. Grimsley is in her second season as a kicker on Dillon's football team. She has made 42 of 44 extra points and is looking for a second straight state championship ring. She will focus entirely on softball for the Lady Catamounts in the Southern Conference when she begins her college career.

Chelsea Broughman, who helped lead Conway Christian to a pair of SCACS state championships, signed with Mars Hill.
