For the second straight day, Atascadero High School celebrated a student-athlete signing her National Letter of Intent. Bailey Doherty signed to play softball with Cal Poly Friday afternoon.

Bailey is the ace in the circle for the Greyhounds. During her junior season, she gave up only 22 earned runs in 174 innings of work, while collecting 276 strikeouts. And at the dish, Bailey hit for a .390 average with six home runs and 25 RBI.

She says she's looking forward to joining the Mustangs.

"It makes me feel super excited for what's coming next. I just feel relieved that hard work has truly paid off," Doherty said. "I just hope the hard work keeps carrying me and brings me far into my career."
