Former Arroyo Grande High and Fresno State softball star Jill Compton recently signed a three-year contract with the Dallas Charge of the National Pro Fastpitch league.

The Oceano native was the two-time Mountain West Pitcher of the Year and earned all-conference recognition all four years of her career. Compton earned 11 Big West Pitcher of the Week awards and was considered among the best pitcher in Mountain West history.

Compton completed her collegiate career ranked second all-time in the Mountain West in wins (87), games started (133) and complete games (86).

“To get the opportunity to play for the Dallas Charge and in the NPF this summer means everything to me,” Compton said in a release, adding that she’s “so excited to play with and compete against some of the best players in the world.”

The NPF has been an official partner of Major League Baseball since 2002, and the 2016 season will be televised on CBS Sports Network. Dallas (1-1) split its season-opening series with the Pennsylvania Rebellion and is scheduled to begin a three-game set against the Chicago Bandits this weekend.
