COLUMBIA — Anna Reed, who led Division I junior college softball players with 96 RBIs last year, has signed with Missouri, the university has announced.
The outfielder was an All-American, batting .493 with 16 home runs last year for Jefferson College in Hillsboro.
“We are very excited to have Anna join our program here at Missouri,” coach Ehren Earleywine said in a news release. “She is someone with the type of ability and work ethic that will fit in well at this level of college softball. We’re eager to get started with Anna here in Columbia in the fall.”
Reed, from Lonedell, was a freshman last year for a team that finished 53-14 and won the regional championship.
“It’s just really exciting,” Reed said in the news release, in regard to joining the Tigers. “Growing up in Missouri, I’ve been a fan of Mizzou Softball since I was really young. It’s great to think I’ll be playing for Coach Earleywine and for Mizzou, since this is a team that I’ve seen on TV. I went to their camps when I was little. It’s so cool to think that I’ll actually be playing there.”
