Wilson commits to NDSCS / Softball

The next stop for Oak Harbor High School softball player Miranda Wilson is North Dakota State College of Science.

Wilson, the daughter of Noell Wilson and Larry Burton, signed a letter of intent Wednesday, June 5, to play for the Wildcats next season.

The senior was offered a scholarship last week and accepted.

Wilson chose the school because “the coach was very dedicated in my college recruiting experience,” Wilson said. “He helped me with all I needed to know.”

She “loves where the school is located (Wahpeton),” adding, “it is beautiful.”

NDSCS also has a strong nursing program, Wilson’s choice of study.

Wilson thanked her coaches for making her “a better player and person.”

First-year Oak Harbor head coach Alicia Ashburn said, “I was very blessed to have Miranda as a senior leader. Her level of play made everyone around her better.

“I’m excited she has the opportunity to play beyond the high school level.”

Wilson said, “I will always love this program and this school. The team helped through this process; it was great.”

Wilson, who also lettered in basketball for OHHS, was a four-year starter on the softball team and a Western Conference honorable mention selection this spring.
