RESERVE — Riverside Academy softball players Alainah Felton and Emily Vicknair signed National Letters of Intent Friday afternoon to continue playing softball at the collegiate level.

Felton, a senior pitcher/first baseman, signed to play for Southern University in Baton Rouge. Felton has been a member of the team since seventh grade and is a three-time All-District player. She hit .500 as a junior with 12 doubles, three triples, and 64 RBLs. Last season Felton hit 15 of the 53 home runs the team had last season.

“I decided to go to Southern because I wanted to go to a HBCU,” Felton said. “I wanted to stay close to home.”

Vicknair, also a pitcher, signed to play for Hinds Community College in Raymond, Mississippi. Vicknair has been a member of the team since seventh grade. She missed the 2021-2022 season due to a shoulder injury but will return to the lineup later in the spring.
