Lewiston High senior Jacqueline House is headed to Ontario, Ore., to play softball for Treasure Valley Community College.
A 5-foot-7 outfielder, House signed a letter of intent Monday to play for coach Gordy Ogawa and his Chukars.
“We love her size and athleticism,” Ogawa said. “She has taken care of business in the classroom and will make a great addition to our program.”
House hits for both average and power. Playing travel ball for both the L-C Ice and L-C Lightning last summer, she had a batting average of .410 in tournaments throughout the Inland Northwest, plus hit four home runs. The summer of 2017, playing for the Ice, she hit eight home runs.
“She has size, speed and strength and that’s a rare combination,” L-C Ice coach Greg Vaughns said. “Her speed, power and work ethic put her over the top,” added Vaughns, a veteran softball coach and former baseball player at Lewis-Clark State College.
House also had a scholarship offer from Yakima Valley College but chose TVCC because she said it’s a better fit for her. She is considering studying wild lands fire fighting management at the school.
House is the third member of the 2018 L-C Ice to sign with a college. Mikayla Hill is headed to Wenatchee Valley Community College and Paiton Vargas to Grays Harbor Community College in Aberdeen, Wash. Hill and Vargas are seniors at Clarkston High.
House currently is playing for coach Kristin Delp at Lewiston High.
House is the daughter of Sarah House, and Micah and Shauyna House.
