OXFORD, Miss. – Courtney Syrett, a second team All-State selection in the state of New York, has signed a national letter of intent to play softball at Ole Miss, head coach Windy Thees announced Wednesday.
One of the top softball players in the Empire State, Syrett was named All-Long Island as a catcher last season. A Bay Shore, N.Y., native, Syrett has been named All-Division as a freshman, sophomore and junior, and was the League II Rookie of the Year as an 8th grader.
“We are very excited to have Courtney Syrett joining our squad in 2013,” Thees said. “A true leader on the field, she is a coach’s dream behind the plate. She is vocal on the field with great hands and a strong arm. She also has great power at the plate and will be a good RBI producer for us.”
Syrett is a four-time All-League selection and was named second team East Region as a sophomore. Ranked No. 20 of the Top 31 Athletes on Long Island, Syrett was named the Bay Shore Softball Player of the Year, and won the Bay Shore Softball Silver Slugger Award. She was also named the Field Player of the Year and to the Large Schools Playoff All-Stars as a captain. Syrett helped lead Bay Shore High School to a state championship in 2010, and was an NFCA Scholar Athlete recipient. Syrett played club softball for Team Long Island.
A very skilled field hockey player as well, Syrett was named All-Division and All-Conference as a freshman and sophomore. She was also named to the All-Tournament team as a freshman, and the All-County team as a sophomore. Syrett is also a two-year letter winner on the varsity basketball team.
