Lomax is the only one going to a division-one program.   She's been a softball star on the diamond leading the Hornets to a 12-4 record this season.

She's batting .660 with 31 hits.   Lomax has 7 home runs and 32 RBI.

Now she'll take her talents to a JMU, where the softball program has become a national powerhouse.

"They're a small school but they compete with the best, I really liked that a lot," says Lomax.  "They're (JMU) getting an all-around player/teammate, someone who's willing to win all the time.  It's awesome having all the softball girls with me there too (today), the people I've grown up with.  It's pretty awesome."
