For the second straight year the Scotland County R-I softball program is sending a hurler on to the collegiate level. On Wednesday, March 9th, SCR-I standout Rebecca Consbrock signed a national letter of intent to play softball for Central Methodist University in Fayette.

In her lone season as the SCR-I starting pitcher, Consbrock was named a first team all-conference and all-district performer. She earned honorable mention honors in 2004 as an infielder.

Consbrock worked under the tutelage of pitching coach Lee Spurgeon for the past five years. She played with the Kirksville Katz traveling team the past four summers and helped the team to two third-place finishes in the state as well as a top 20 national finish.

The young hurler wont be taking the summer off. Shell play with the Columbia Rockers beginning April 2 before enrolling in school this fall.

Rebecca is the daughter of Brian and Emily Consbrock of Memphis. She is a member of the National Honor Society, FBLA, Gee Jaze and SWAT. Consbrock is the senior class vice president and also was a four-year letter earner in basketball.

Consbrock is the second consecutive SCR-I pitcher to advance to the college ranks. Sara Eggleston is pitching for Culver-Stockton College.
