Halifax County High School’s Nathan Comer and Maddie Freshour signed letters of intent this week to continue their athletic careers in college.

Comer will be attending Averett University to play baseball for the Cougars. Freshour is off to Randolph College as a dual athlete in swimming and soccer.

Comer, who catches and spends some time at first base for the Comets, said he’s worked hard for the opportunity and is thankful he was selected. In addition to playing for the Comets baseball team Comer also played travel ball.

“I played with Roy Keith Lloyd and the Panthers,” Comer said of his travel ball experience.

He noted his recruitment came about by him playing with the Panthers. He was competing against a team where Averett was scouting one of the players. He says he had a great game that day and the Averett coaches took notice.

“It was one of those things where I was in the right place at the right time,” Comer said.

Comer is looking to “keep the bats hot,” as he heads off to Averett. He stated the coaches are looking for him to play first and third base possibly for the Cougars.

He hopes to bring solid offense, leadership abilities, and a good attitude to the Cougars.

Comer lives in Halifax County; his parents are Craig and Krista Comer.

Freshour will continue playing soccer and will be a member of the swim team also as she prepares to attend Randolph College. The two-sport senior has been a consistent performer for the Comets swim team and brings a strong game to the soccer field.

Freshour’s coaches praised her work ethic on and off the field, and her willingness to learn and improve. Her parents are Mike and Melissa Freshour.
