E-T Staff Report

Tarleton State won’t lose many players off its softball team that will take the field this spring, but there’s always room to add.

Head coach Julie Mata has announced one early signing for the 2011-12 school year as Danbury standout Ashley Noak has signed a letter of intent to come to Tarleton.

Noak was named All-State as both as a sophomore and junior and is currently a senior. She is primarily an infielder, playing first base and catcher, but also has experience in the outfield.
