Two Central Virginia athletes signed their national letter of intents Tuesday to play sports in college. Western Albemarle's Bridget Shaffrey signed with Bucknell for lacrosse. Orange County's Aysha Richardson signed with Virginia Tech for softball.
Shaffrey was the Warriors leading scorer last year as a junior. She was voted all-region. Shaffrey led Western deep into the state playoffs last year. She says Bucknell was a good fit for her.
"I think that I'll get to continue my career and doing something that I really love to do and getting a great education out of it, all those things are awesome and I'm just excited that this is what its all led up to."
Richardson was voted first team all-region last year as a junior batting .527 and as a pitcher had a 0.91 ERA with 167 strikeouts.
Richardson says, "I was recruited by a few other schools, I went and visited but Virginia Tech was my number one school that I really wanted to go to so when I had the opportunity I took it. I actually grew up a 'Hoo so its kind of different, I have to adapt to being a Hokie now."
