Senior Shaylon Govan, a four year varsity softball player, officially signed with Stephen F. Austin University (SFA) on Nov. 14. Her teammates, friends, family, coaches and other school staff were in attendance.

SFA started looking at Govan during her sophomore year. Govan began playing softball when she was 10 years old and it quickly became her passion. She has helped lead her team to playoffs in two out of the past three seasons.

“As a freshman, Shay helped put Mayde Creek softball on the map,” head varsity softball coach Jill Voss said. “She continues to dominate as one of the top hitters in the state and is a force in the circle. I look forward to seeing how far we can go as a team this year behind her leadership.”

Govan looks forward to the hard work that is in store for her at the collegiate level.

“[As I was signing] I felt very accomplished and I look forward to all of the hard work coming my way at SFA,” Govan said. “All the early mornings of working out and practice will be worth it.”
