Sherrard senior pitcher Ashlynn Hawotte will take her softball skills to the next level after signing with Carl Sandburg College in Galesburg.

As a junior, Hawotte joined with then-freshman Rachel Winston to provide a solid pitching backline behind senior ace and current Augustana hurler Ashley Anderson. In 15 games, Hawotte was 2-0 with a 2.21 ERA as the Tigers won 29 games and took fourth in the Class 2A state tournament at East Peoria.

This season, she has split time in the circle with Winston to help Sherrard to an 8-3 start that includes a 3-0 mark in the West Central Conference's North Division. At CSC, Hawotte will join a roster that will include current freshmen Haily Huizenga (Erie-Prophetstown), Kaylee Moseley (Rockridge) and Ali Weston (Kewanee).
