It has been more than a season and a change since Alexis Baker suited up for a softball game at North Central High School. That fact did not slow schools down from trying to gain her services both on the field and in the classroom. Baker, a senior whose sterling grades and abundance of credit hours will allow her to graduate from North Central in December rather than next May, signed a National Letter of Intent for softball with Lincoln Memorial University in a ceremony held inside The Castle in Boonetown.
