ASHFORD, Ala. (WDHN) – Barrett Lawrence of Ashford signed with Gulf Coast State College softball.

Lawrence primarily plays infield positions for the Yellow Jackets, but she says wherever Coach Thomas wants her at Gulf Coast is where she’ll want to be.

Lawrence’s junior season with Ashford she had a .466 batting average, .535 on base percentage, five homers, 29 RBIs and 25 runs scored.

Ashford’s head softball coach is Barrett’s dad Eric and she believes his guidance has made all the difference in her athletic career.

“It was tough,” Barrett Lawrence said. “He was definitely harder on me than he was on anybody else which I’m very thankful for because if he wouldn’t have pushed me to be the greatest I could be, I wouldn’t be here right now.”

Ahead of her senior season with the Jackets she says she plans to be the best leader she can be.
