Princeton’s Megan Bryant has always been a fierce competitor and after recently signing her national letter of intent, Bryant will compete at the next level, playing softball for the University of Mount Olive.
Mount Olive was a really good fit for Bryant as she noted feeling comfortable there when she visited.
“When I went to camp there, it felt like home and I didn’t feel pressure to be something I’m not,” said Bryant. “It fit me well.”
Bryant’s game has fit the Princeton softball program well as she has a career batting average of .380, has scored 84 runs and has delivered 71 base hits.
The Bulldogs have a combined record of 59-14 over Bryant’s three years of varsity experience and an even more impressive 34-2 mark inside conference play.
Princeton softball coach Terry Braswell credits Bryant’s ability to lead, even as an underclassman, as being a key to the Bulldogs’ success, including the team’s state championship two seasons ago.
“She was a leader from the word go,” Braswell said. “She didn’t mind saying what needed to happen.
She’s going to do what you need her to do both defensively and offensively; she gets it done.”
Bryant didn’t seriously consider any other schools as she honed in on the University of Mount Olive and looks to pursue a degree in criminal justice and hopefully go on to work at the State Bureau of Investigation.
