Allie Lane has learned a lot during her career as a softball player. She has been playing softball since childhood, so through middle school, high school, and travel softball leagues, Lane has seen and heard a lot.
Throughout her high school career, Lane has developed into a solid, all-around player that Southern Wayne has depended on throughout her high school career.
She will get the chance to extend that career, as she signed a letter of intent to attend Wake Technical Community College.
“It’s a dream come true, that’s for sure,” Lane said.
Several factors made Lane decide that she wanted to become an Eagle. Still, her familiarity with the Wake Tech softball program was one of the biggest factors.
She intends to major in physical therapy.
“One of the Wake Tech assistant coaches is one of my travel ball team’s organizational leaders,” Lane said. “Getting to play with some of my best friends, who are also attending, as well as the coaching staff, and falling in love with the campus.”
Lane is a four-year player for the Saints and one of their key pieces. Southern Wayne head coach Jamie Williams said it is an honor to watch Lane grow into the player and field leader she has become.
“It’s super exciting that she’s playing at the next level. Wake Tech is getting a steal, so I’m excited for her to continue to live her dream,” Williams said. “She is a phenom on the field. Offensively, defensively, the mental part of the game, the work put in behind the scenes, she is the total package.”
Lane will take plenty of memories with her Wake Tech, but before she heads off to Wake Tech next fall, she will look to make some more memories this spring during her final season in a Saints jersey.
“Just go hard every play and have fun while I’m doing it,” Lane said.
