Britt signs with St. Joseph's

Lebanon senior Lexy Britt won't be too far from home when she continues her softball playing career.

Britt signed a national letter of intent to play softball at St. Joseph's College in Rensselaer on Thursday afternoon in a signing ceremony.

"It feels good and it is comforting to know (that it is done)," Britt said of ending the recruiting process and signing the letter of intent. "I don't have to worry about the decision anymore and I can just play to have fun and not worry about coaches watching me."

Britt said that she wanted to stay close to home and that IUPUI was one of the other main schools recruiting her.

She said that St. Joseph's stood out for a couple of reasons.

"My best friend (former Zionsville player) Bri (Wagner) goes there and plays softball there so that was a plus," Britt said. "They had the program I wanted to do and it was a small campus and a lot like Lebanon — it is basically the same amount of people so that made sense to me."

St. Joseph's finished last season 27-19 and is a Division II school that plays in the Great Lakes Valley Conference.

Britt will be the fourth Boone County player to play for the Pumas. Along with Wagner, former Zionsville standouts Kalene Davis and Kenzie Anderson currently play for the team.

"All three of them I know and they are all really great friends and we are all really close," Britt said. "It was easy for me to talk to them and have them tell me what goes on there and it made me feel even better."

Britt also said that having St. Joseph's a little more than an hour away was a plus.

"I love that," Britt said. "I am such a home person. And I love my dog and I am going to miss him when I leave, so it is good to be able to come home whenever I need to."
