Spring Hill College Head Softball Coach Alison Sellers-Cook has announced that catcher Jade Bourgeois of Dutchtown High School in Geismar, La., has committed to play softball at Spring Hill College.
 
Bourgeois, a three-time All-Metro selection in Baton Rouge, La., hit .429 for the Griffins as a junior in 2010. She is also a three-time All-District and All-Ascension Parish performer and was selected All-State in Louisiana last season.
 
This past summer, Bourgeois was chosen the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) World Series MVP as a member of the Louisiana Lady Hawks.
 
She selected Spring Hill over Millsaps College and Belhaven University.
 
"I really liked the campus and the Mobile area," Bourgeois said. "They've got a great education program and I like the fact that it's close to home."
 
Bourgeois, an honor student and DHS Academic Award winner, plans to major in Secondary Education with an emphasis on math.
