INMAN — Inman’s Megan Potter has signed a softball letter of intent with Sterling College.

The Teuton senior started last year at both first and third base.

“I really liked Sterling on my first visit and I already knew a lot of people from church camp,” Potter said. “Before I talked to (Sterling) coach (Josh) Musselman and practiced with the team, I already really liked the school, but after talking with coach and practicing with the team I was pretty set on going there.”

Potter added it felt like home.

“It felt like a family from the second I got there,” she said. “The coaches and the players were all really helpful during the practice and treated me like I was a part of the team during the time I was there, which was pretty cool.”

Potter said academics also weighed heavily in the decision.

“Another reason why I chose Sterling is because of the professors,” she said. “In the classes there you aren't just a number, they know your name and who you are, they actually care about you and will do whatever they can to help you, when I was talking to a few of the professors that was what really impressed me.”

Potter ran cross country this fall and is a member of the Teuton basketball team. She is going to major in elementary education.
