Samanthia McQuade signed a National Letter of Intent last Thursday, April 15, at McConnellsburg High School accepting a scholarship and to play softball at Shepherd University next year.

The Rams are a Division II program and are under the guidance of third-year head coach Leslie Lopez. With only one senior on this year’s roster, competition for playing time will be fierce and McQuade will vie for one of the infield positions next season. She is a four-year starter for the McConnellsburg Lady Spartan softball team and earned first team allstate honors last year as a designated player. She has also gained all-star recognition from the Sideling Hill League, Inter County Conference, the Public Opinion and the Morning Herald.

McQuade was coached the past three years by Michelle Eichelberger and is coached her senior season by John Heuston. She is a fouryear letter winner in soccer and has lettered in basketball at MHS.

She is the daughter of Jeannie and Ellis Mc- Quade and plans on pursuing a degree in psychology at Shepherd.
