Hockett Signs to Join SFCC Softball Team
Smith-Cotton senior Reagan Hockett has accepted an athletic scholarship to play softball at State Fair Community College.
Hockett, the daughter of Rochelle and Steve Hockett, is a four-year letter winner who was selected to the All-West Central Conference team in 2015 and the All-District team in 2015 and 2017. As the Lady Tigers starting shortstop, she was Defensive Player of the Year in 2015 with a fielding percentage of .918.
SFCC softball head coach Lyndsey Talbot expects to tap into Hockett’s versatility.
“She’s got a lot of speed and we’re looking forward to getting her used to the outfield for us, that is a big need,” Talbot said.
S-C softball head coach Hilliary Owens said: “I am excited for Reagan to have this opportunity to continue her softball career. Reagan has been a varsity started for four years with the Smith-Cotton softball program and she has seen successes in many areas of our program, as I know she will have with SFCC and Coach Talbot as well.”
Targeting players like Hockett is a priority for the Lady Roadrunners.
“We’re trying get as much local talent as we can,” Talbot said. “(Hockett) is one of those kids who will run through a brick wall and that is the kind of kid I like to recruit."
