Basset signs with Northeast Texas Community College

WESTWOOD, April 26, 2017-Recently, Westwood senior, Korbyn Basset signed with Eagles.

The past four years Basset has played shortstop for the Westwood Varsity softball team. Basset plans to further her career in softball and play as third base at Northeast Texas Community College.

“I’m really excited,” said Basset. “I’m ready to get out of the house and be responsible for my own things.”

Varsity softball coach, Jenna Jenkins, expressed excitement about Basset’s signing.

“I’m really proud of her,” said Jenkins. “She is a kid that we always knew it would be a possibility for her to get signed and play at the next level.”

Basset plans to not only further her career as a softball player, but to also pursue a career as an occupational therapist.

“I am going to school to be an occupational therapist assistant,” said Basset. “I might also do coaching on the side.”
