She started playing softball when she was ten- years-old, and was selected to play varsity softball in the tenth grade. Last week, Tori Ourth, a Cape Central High School Senior, signed to play softball for Southeast Illinois College (SIC) in Harrisburg, IL, where she will be attending classes on a scholarship.

Her mother, Karen Gregory, a 1978 Cape Central Alum who played second base for the Tigers, said, "Softball runs in our family."
