Northeast High School’s Dominique Todd commits to APSU Softball

Austin Peay State University Lady Govs - APSUClarksville, TN – Dominique Todd of nearby Northeast High School is the latest addition the Fall 2013 signing class for Austin Peay softball.

Todd plays third base and outfield for Jennifer and Dusty Brady – he a former Austin Peay football and tennis player, she a former Lady Govs softball player – at Northeast, where she has been All-District 10-AAA each of the last two seasons.

Todd will join former Northeast teammate Rikki Arkansas, a freshman on the Lady Govs roster this season, in 2015. She’ll also team up with a familiar foe in Heather Norris, a standout at 10-AAA rival Clarksville High, who recently committed to the Lady Govs.

“She’s got a ton of speed, and that’s what really made her stand out to us,” said Lady Govs head coach Stephanie Paris. “I’m hoping she and Rikki can be speed threats in this lineup and great outfielders for us as well.”

During her junior campaign, the slap-hitting Todd hit .441 and scored 29 runs, striking out just seven times in 102 at-bats. She led the Eagles to a third-place finish in the 10-AAA tournament, falling to Dickson County in the play-in semifinal matchup.

“We had no speed last year,” Paris said. “I want to run and steal bags and get in scoring position, and I think adding Dominique will help us.”

The daughter of James Todd and Stephanie Mudd, Dominique plans to major in chemistry at Austin Peay.
