Hernando pitcher Courtney Riddle, last season's Hernando Today Player of the Year in softball, signed with the College of Central Florida on Wednesday.
The College of Central Florida is a junior college out of Ocala, formerly named Central Florida Community College.
Already a four-time All-County selection, having helped Hernando Christian Academy reach the Final Four as a seventh- and eighth-grader, the right-hander was instrumental in the Lady Leopards advancing to the Elite Eight last spring.
Last season, she went 22-7 with a 1.41 earned run average, striking out 177 batters in 188.2 innings. She also hit .448 with 42 runs batted in.
