LHS pitcher Jordan Farmer signs with North Greenville

Published 6:35pm Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Landrum High School senior Jordan Farmer signed to play softball at North Greenville University Wednesday, April 17.
“I really wanted to stay close to home,” Farmer said. “Also the atmosphere of the school is really great with it being in a small town – it’s what I’m used to and it just felt right.”
Farmer, who’s played softball since she was 4, said the game has always been a love of hers. In seventh grade, Farmer said her dad convinced her to give pitching lessons a try and those first lessons forever changed her course in the game. By eighth grade Farmer began as the starting pitcher for the varsity Cardinals.
LHS Varsity Softball Coach Tucker Hamrick said watching Farmer sign a college scholarship was a huge moment for him. Hamrick was named the softball coach at Landrum four years ago and has coached Farmer her entire high school career.
