Hoppenjans to play at Olney Central CollegeJanuary 29, 2014
From Herald Staff Reports
LINCOLN CITY — Kayala Hoppenjans said she didn’t want to feel like just another number. So she’s going to a place where that number is a little bit smaller.
Friday, Hoppenjans signed to attend Olney Central College in Illinois, where she will continue her softball career with the Knights.
Hoppenjans made her decision near Thanksgiving and credits the program’s coach, Nick Short, and the full scholarship offered as primary reasons for choosing the 2,500-student junior college, about an hour and a half west of her home in Ferdinand.
Hoppenjans, the daughter of Kenny and Joyce Hoppenjans, expects to play third base for the Knights, as she does for the Patriots, and hopes to compete for playing time right away. The senior batted .400 last year for the Pats.
Hoppenjans is considering majoring in physical therapy in college, but as for now, the senior is just thankful to have the whole process settled.
“It’s just a relief,” she said.
