Emma Jo Wolfe, daughter of Joe and Melodee Wolfe of South Hill, has signed a letter of intent to continue her academic and athletic career at Southern Wesleyan University.

Wolfe, a ball player since the age of four, plans to study pre-medicine and play center infield. “I know it’s going to be tough” she said. “I’m going to be very busy, but I’ll be doing what I love.” She currently pitches and plays infield for Park View and the Lake Country Crushers travel ball team.

Wolfe was first noticed by the SWU softball coaching staff at a summer softball camp in Northern Virginia in late July 2018.

Park View head coach Dean Crutchfield said, “It has been a joy for me to have been a part of Emma’s high school softball career. Her love for the game is always accompanied with the enthusiasm to play it. She has become a good leader and accepts the demands that come along with being one.

“Not only is Emma an accomplished softball player, she also is an excellent student as well,” he continued. “Southern Wesleyan is getting one of our finest. I wish her all the best.”
