Through four stellar years on the varsity, Marsha' Pendilton has made life miserable for softball opponents of Jefferson City High School.

Now she's making it her mission to make things tough on the opponents of the DePaul Blue Demons.

"When you have several people tell you, "Thank goodness she's a senior,' that tells you something," Jefferson City coach Lisa Dey said.

Pendilton, known for her speed during her years with the Lady Jays, took time to slow down Thursday to sign a letter of intent with the NCAA Division I school.
