In a Veteran’s Day signing, Massac County’s Macy Pierce signed a national letter of intent [NLI] to attend John A. Logan College in Carterville and play softball for the Vols.

Like so many high school athletes, Pierce lost her chance to “shine on the diamond” when athletics were shut down this past spring but hopes to make up for it when, and if, spring sports are allowed in 2021.

In Pierce, the Vols are getting a solid glove and a potent bat. Pierce said she made up her mind about JALC last Halloween. Pierce said she played volleyball her freshman year but then decided to focus on softball.

Pierce made All Conference her sophomore year and was awarded the team’s offensive award last year.

She said her most memorable moment [so far] at Massac County was beating Marion in regionals in the 3A semis at Carbondale in 2019.

In the regional finals that year, Pierce also clubbed a huge three run homer against Carbondale but the moment lost its luster as the Lady Terriers won in the ninth inning on a leadoff home run.

Off the diamond, Pierce is a member of the National Honor Society.

As for her future, Pierce said she would like to play at a four year school after JALC but needs time to decide on a career path.

Pierce is the daughter of Terry and Krystal Pierce.
