GALESBURG — Galesburg High School’s Becca Tharp has signed to play for the Carl Sandburg College softball team.
A 5-foot-7 pitcher/first baseman, Tharp graduated early from GHS at the end of the fall semester. She’ll enroll at Sandburg for the upcoming spring semester and suit up for the Chargers this season.
While with the Silver Streaks, Tharp was an honorable mention All-Western Big 6 Conference selection as a junior this past spring, and she was named the team’s Offensive Player of the Year during her sophomore season.
Tharp’s sister, Kaylee Moseley, played basketball and softball for the Chargers from 2012-14, earning second-team All-Region IV honors in softball as a sophomore.
Sandburg will kick off its 2017 campaign with its Spring Break trip March 12-15 to southern Alabama and the Florida Panhandle.
