Tori Ourth signs to play softball for Southeast Illinois College
She was the Defensive MVP in her sophomore and junior years and she went to the Softball World Series two years in a row with her traveling team, the Southern Illinois Dirt Dogs. 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."
