During her time as a Ringling Lady Blue Devils softball player, Kelsea Thompson was always ready to make a play whether it was at the plate or out in the field. Tuesday morning, she made another type of play, but one that will last a lot longer than just an out or an inning. In front of her friends, family and coaches at the Ringling High School library, the Lady Blue Devils standout officially put her signature on a National Letter of Intent to play college softball for Murray State College in Tishomingo, as a member of the Lady Aggies. Thompson becomes the third local softball player this signing period to ink with Murray State, joining Ardmore’s Makila Case, and Sulphur’s Abby Beck. This season, Thompson wasn’t just an impact player at the plate, but in the field as well for the Lady Blue Devils. Thompson finished the season with a batting average of .429, with a .571 slugging percentage. She totaled 15 hits for the year with 12 RBI’s and seven runs scored. In the field, the Lady Blue Devils standout recorded a .949 fielding percentage with 37 putouts and just two errors for the season.
