WILLIAMSBURG Ky. - The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Softball program is pleased to announce the signing of Ms. Laurel Hopf to their 2013-2014 roster.
Laurel will come to UC from Centerville, Ohio and is the daughter of Todd and Kristie Hopf. She attends Centerville High School where she will graduate this coming spring.
Hopf is known for her skills behind the plate at the catcher position.

"I fell in love with the beautiful campus and the players that I got the chance to meet through attending my sister's games. I knew this was the place for me to continue my softball career."
The Patriots Head Softball Coach Angie Dean added, "I am very excited about adding Laurel Hopf to our 2013-14 Patriot Softball Team.
