Whittney Gee signs with Blue Mountain

Whittney Gee, a hard-hitting shortstop for the Vardaman Lady Rams, has signed a softball scholarship with Blue Mountain College.
“This is a big signing for us,” said BMC coach Kevin Barefield. “Whittney is one of the best young players in North Mississippi and we’re excited that she’s going to join our program. She’s solid on both offense and defense, and we expect her to contribute right away.”

As a junior at Vardaman, Gee had a .537 batting average and an .815 slugging percentage. She had 17 doubles, 5 triples, one home run and 27 stolen bases. Gee also had an .844 fielding average with only 7 errors in 31 games.
