When she returns to the prep softball diamond in two months to begin her senior season, Riverdale's Sadie Mosher will be faced with the task of being the Rams' No. 1 pitcher.

One matter Mosher won't have to face, though, is where she will play her post-prep softball. She is slated to sign with Lincoln Land Community College in Springfield, with her signing ceremony set for this afternoon at 2:30 in the Riverdale High School cafeteria.

Splitting time between the pitching circle and second base with current Butler University freshman Rachel Wirt, Mosher compiled a 9-7 record last spring with a 2.73 ERA and 111 strikeouts. She was also among the 17-10 Rams' leading hitters, checking in with a .500 batting average with 10 doubles, 17 RBIs and 27 runs scored.

Mosher will join a Lincoln Land program that compiled a 34-20 record last season.
