Peyton Rose signs with Morehead State

Peyton Rose signed her letter of intent with Morehead State University on Friday, Dec. 1 and will play softball for the Eagles next year. A large crowd gathered in the Woodford County High School library for a ceremony and celebration of Rose's achievement.

“I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders,” said Rose with a big grin. “Even though I had already committed, I was still nervous and cannot believe this is happening. There were so many steps along the way to get here and now I am feeling all of it hit me at once. It's a great feeling. I cannot thank the people in this room enough for all of their encouragement and support through my whole softball career. I hope they know how much I appreciate them. ”

Rose was a leader and key member of last season's WCHS softball team that made a run to the state softball tournament. This year as a senior, Rose is poised to lead the team to more success on the field. Rose will begin a training regiment in the summer for her career at Morehead State.

“I'm excited to play this season because I know we have a lot of talent on the team,” said Rose. “Next year will be interesting because the game stays the same but everything else will be new and exciting. I look forward to showing them what I can do.

Rose hit for a .327 average last season and had 20 stolen bases for the year. Rose also was terrific in the field and had a .859 fielding percentage for the Lady Jackets.
