When she arrives at the University of Arkansas-Pine Bluff later this year, Emilee Gwyn might consider registering for an astronomy course.
The Brandon senior, after all, knows firsthand about how planets can align perfectly in one's world, if only for a day.
On Tuesday, Gwyn had the cast removed from the hand she broke March 12 against Bloomingdale. Then, she signed her formal paperwork with Arkansas-Pine Bluff, a Division I program that competes in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Finally, in that night's semifinals of the Class 6A, District 8 tournament, Gwyn laid down a textbook suicide squeeze in the seventh inning to score the winning run against Bloomingdale and propel Brandon into the playoffs.
Gwyn, a catcher converted to second base to accomodate the injured hand, is the first Eagles softball player to sign with a Division I program since 1992.
