CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Sanctioned high school softball has begun its second season in Wyoming this spring. Dominique Baker became the first in the history of the Natrona County High School softball program to sign to play college softball on Wednesday.

“I like it,” said Baker when she was informed of the history of her putting pen to paper at her Signing Day ceremony. “It’s nerve-wracking, I guess.”

With her mom at her side, Baker signed with Dakota College at Bottineau, which is located in North Dakota and just south of the Canadian border. It’s a community college that plays in the Mon-Dak Athletic Conference.

Baker plays primarily third base and outfield. During her junior season, the first sanctioned Wyoming high school softball season, Baker batted .313 with 14 RBIs and 23 stolen bases.

Baker said she’s enjoyed her time representing the Fillies on the softball field. “I love my teammates. They’re fun. I love the coaches. The coaching staff is great. I love the competitiveness. I just love everything.”

Baker said she plans to study biochemistry in college. Congratulations to her and her family.
