Columbus Grove senior Brooke Hoffman (seated, center) signed a letter-of-intent Monday morning to attend the University of Rio Grande to further her education and play softball. Hoffman has earned two varsity letters as a rightfielder for the Bulldogs. She was named to the PCL and NWC first team last season for Grove. She will major in education as she would like to be an Early Childhood Specialist or an Intervention Specialist.


At the signing Monday (seated) were her parents Todd and Dee Dee Hoffman. In the back row are Greg Schroeder, Columbus Grove assistant softball coach, Chris Hammond, Rio Grande head softball coach, and Travis Gallmeier, Columbus Grove softball head coach. (Putnam Sentinel/Charlie Warnimont)
