BASKING RIDGE, NJ -- Two members of the Ridge High School softball team last week took part in a signing ceremony to attend colleges where they will continue their athletic careers.

Allegra DeCandia signed with Gettysburg College and Annabelle Hamilton signed with Post University in a ceremony that took place at the high school last Wednesday.

DeCandia, a catcher/first baseman, batted .406 with three home runs and 24 runs batted in as a junior. Hamilton, a shortstop who also can play third base and the outfield, batted .526 with 40 RBI as a junior.

DeCandia and Hamilton both were key components on a Ridge softball team that posted a 16-8 record and reached the Somerset County Tournament championship game last spring.
