BUNKIE, La. (KALB) - Who says girls can't rule the world? In this case, Jensen Gremillion is ruling Bunkie after signing to play softball at Southwest Mississippi Community College.
Jensen is the first softball player to sign at the collegiate level from Avoyelles parish in the past eight years.
“I'm ecstatic to move away and go play softball because it's what I've always wanted to do,” Gremillion said. “I'm just really excited about this journey, and I'm excited to see what the future holds for me.”
“I definitely could not have asked for a better ball player in Jensen and everything that she brought to this team,” softball head coach Katelyn Hines said. “She has the heart, dedication, and the drive, and that's something you can't put into them. They have to have that and want that themselves. They (Southwest) will be extremely blessed with her.”
“Over the past two years, I have been able to see her progress, and I'm so proud of her,” catcher Madeline Ducote added.
"I'm so excited to be accomplishing all these things with my teammates," Gremillion said. "They are my favorite people in the world and I couldn't have done it without them.”
