White County’s Caydra Parker Signs With South Carolina

White County softball star Caydra Parker took the next step in her academic and athletic career when she signed her National Letter of Intent to play at the next level at the University of South Carolina.

The powerful outfielder said she was being recruited by several schools, including several Big 10 and SEC schools, but South Carolina felt like home.

“I went on many college visits,” said Parker. “I took South Carolina because it felt like home to me right away. I couldn’t pass it up. It’s exactly what I always dreamed of.”

Playing in the Southeastern Conference is the pinnacle for any softball player, and Parker said she is excited.

“It’s very exciting,” said Parker.

Parker said she thinks her ability to hit with power will translate well to the next level.

“My hitting (will translate), for sure,” said Parker.

While she has a bright future ahead, Parker said she is also looking forward to her senior season for the Warriorettes.

“Play my hardest with the girls I grew up with,” said Parker on her goals for the season. “I’ve always played with them ever since we were little.”
