River Ridge centerfielder Madisyn Palmer has orally committed to Florida Atlantic.
The junior made the announcement via Twitter on Thursday evening, followed by an outpouring of retweeted congratulations.
Palmer appeared twice in the Class 6A final and led the Royal Knights with 49 runs scored last season. In the past two years she has had a combined batting average of .471 in 188 plate appearances.
Palmer is one of many recent River Ridge softball players to commit to D-I colleges, including Morgan Tolle (James Madison) and Kenzi Maguire (Arkansas).
