Two Iowa Park Lady Hawks Sign with Vernon

A pair of Iowa Park Lady Hawks will be playing college softball next season.

Blaire Untalan and Kelly Woods both signed scholarships Friday to study and play at Vernon College for the next two seasons.

Woods missed time this season with multiple injuries, tearing her shoulder in mid-season, then coming back and playing well in the playoffs before breaking her foot on a home-run trot against West.

The two played together for years, going back to their childhoods and playing for the Texas Ragdolls club team.

Their coach with the Ragdolls Chris Gartman, who is battling brain cancer, made it out to see his players sign.

Untalan was the player who organized a benefit rib feed in Gartman's honor last June which raised $30,000 to help his expenses.
