PIKEVILLE - Aileah Bartley’s next uniform will have a different color scheme, but could easily say the same thing across the chest.

Bartley, a senior catcher for Pikeville High School, has signed a scholarship agreement to play softball at the University of Pikeville next season. Her parents, PHS Coach Matt Walls and UPike Coach Robert Staggs attended the signing.

The University of Pikeville softball team finished the 2013 season with a record of 20-27.

Pikeville competes in the Mid-South Conference with Lindsey Wilson, Campbellsville, Georgetown, Shawnee State, UVA-Wise, Cumberland (Tenn.), Rio Grande, Pikeville, St. Catharine, Cumberlands and Bluefield.
