(St. Leon, Ind.) – Two East Central High School student-athletes will be classmates once again in college.

The Trojans Athletic Department announced Monday that Kaitlyn Zillick and Jake Jennings will continue their academic and athletic careers at Indiana University Southeast.

Zillick will play softball for the Grenadiers. In 2016, the Lady Trojans third baseman was the County Newcomer of the Year. Zillick is also a two-time All-EIAC selection.

She plans to major in Psychology.

Jake Jennings will also play hardball at IU Southeast. Jennings stars for the Trojans on the mound where his fastball sits in the low to mid-80’s. Jennings’ arsenal also includes a curveball, changeup and slider.

He plans to study Business.
