Roxana senior Andrea Lawson will be continuing her softball career past the high school level.
Lawson recently inked a letter of intent to play for Mineral Area College, a community college in Park Hills, Mo. She will be continuing her career in the pitching circle.
Recently, Lawson celebrated her signing at Roxana High School with family, friends and coaches. She begins her senior season with the Shells with a double header at 10 a.m. Saturday in Mascoutah.
As a junior, Lawson started 24 games and posted 18 complete games for Roxana. She compiled a 5-19 record with a 6.16 ERA in 141.0 innings pitched.
She will look to build on those numbers under new coach Mike Arbuthnot. Arbuthnot returns for his second stint as head coach of the Shells after directing them previously from 1989-95.
