Tech softball signs Walton to NLI

BLACKSBURG – Virginia Tech softball head coach Scot Thomas has announced the signing of Sierra Walton, a junior college transfer from Indian Hills Community College, to a National Letter of Intent.

Walton, a catcher, is set to join the Hokies this fall and is eligible to play immediately. She will have two years of eligibility entering the spring of 2018.

“We are extremely excited to add Sierra to our program,” Thomas said. “She has the skill set and character necessary to be successful at this level and lead us behind the plate.”

A native of Des Moines, Iowa, Walton was a two-time ICCAC All-Region XI first-team selection and a 2017 NFCA second-team All-American. She led the team with a .467 batting average to go along with 12 home runs and 49 RBI. Walton also participated in the 2017 NJCAA Division I where she placed second with 12 home runs on 20 swings.

Indian Hills went to the NJCAA National Tournament in each of Walton’s two seasons with the Warriors.
