Parkview Baptist School seniors Nicky Dawson and Lexie Dautel signed letters of intent to play softball at the collegiate level on Nov. 18 in the high school gym.

Dawson was one of seven LSU signees for the 2017 season. A five-time all-district and all-metro selection and four-time all-state selection in 2015, Dawson took home most valuable player honors for the district and metro areas. She was also named the 2015 Mariucci softball player of the year and finished the 2014 season hitting .602 with 41 RBIs, 74 hits and 59 stolen bases.

Dautel signed with William Carey University in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Dautel, a four-year starter for the Eagles, was named to the LSWA Class 3A All-State team last year, finished the season hitting .455 and led the team in RBIs with 49.
