February 10th, 2012 | By Dee Reed
Terre Haute South High School senior outfielder Rebecca Latta signed a letter of intent to play softball at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College on Saturday, February 4, 2012.
Latta brings the kind of work ethic that The Woods seeks in its students. With a proven commitment to academics, she has maintained a 3.8 grade point average and is a member of the National Honors Society. She plans to study education at The Woods.
She will give the Pomeroys another left-handed hitter in the line-up and a strong arm in the outfield. Latta joins Terre Haute North High School graduate Kelsey Rosselli, as an outfielder at SMWC, who was named United States Collegiate Athletic Association Academic All-American.
Latta has played varsity softball since her freshman year at Terre Haute South. She has significantly influenced the program, as the team was state ranked for the past two years. In addition to her stellar play at Terre Haute South, Latta also played for the Terre Haute Lady REX 18-and-under traveling softball team.
Coach Gary Rodgers sees Rebecca as an immediate contributor to the SMWC program. “Rebecca has speed on the bases and will help cover the gaps and line in the outfield. Her ability to slap and bunt from the left side coupled with her speed will enhance our short game.”
