Recent Calaveras High graduate Courtney Tarbat of Mokelumne Hill signed a letter of intent to attend Holy Names University in Oakland and play softball.

Tarbat made her college decision official Friday in Valley Springs during a signing ceremony that included family, friends and former coaches.

An infielder, Tarbat batted over .400 as a sophomore and junior on the Calaveras High varsity softball team, earning first team all-Mother Lode League honors both seasons. She missed her senior season this past spring recovering from a knee injury she sustained during basketball season.

A three-sport athlete in high school, Tarbat also played volleyball for the Redskins.

Holy Names is an NCAA Division II school that plays in the Pacific West Conference, which also includes several Northern California and Hawaii schools.

Tarbat was recruited as an infielder with her primary position being first base. She is also expected to be used part-time as a pitcher.

The daughter of Angie and Chris Tarbat, Courtney is following in the footsteps of her mother, who played college softball as a freshman at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento in 1984.
