South Houston senior Selena Reyna signed a softball letter of intent on Wednesday to play for Ball State University in Indiana.
"This is really exciting," Reyna said. "I have worked really hard for this and I'm excited that all my hard work has paid off."
Reyna was named first team all-district last spring as a junior. She earned second-team all-district honors her freshman and sophomore seasons.
"Selena came in and hit the ground running as a freshman," South Houston Coach Jonathan Garcia said. "She made an immediate on our team and has steadily gotten better every year."
Reyna was joined at the signing by Garcia and Assistant Coach Kim Cook; her mother, Susie Reyes; and younger sister Andrea Lopez, also a student at South Houston.
"I think Selena's signing says a lot about the softball program at South Houston," Garcia said. "I think this will have a positive impact on her teammates as well, showing them that you can get a scholarship to play softball while at South Houston, if you're willing to be dedicated and put in all the hard work as she has."
"The past four years on the team have been unforgettable," Reyna said.
