(Seguin) – The Atchley sisters will be softball teammates once again, only this time against NCAA Division III competition in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.

Seguin High School senior Shyann Atchley signed a letter of intent to join her older sibling Kaylee as a member of the Schreiner University softball team Wednesday morning during a signing event at Goldie Harris Gym.

The duo formed a lethal double-play combo with Kaylee playing shortstop and then sophomore Shyann at second base during the 2016 season, but the bond they have developed off the field over the years proved the deciding factor in Shyann choosing Schreiner.

“Her senior year, when she moved away, I was kind of like ‘oh no, what am I going to do,’ but then this year we were talking a lot about it, because I wasn’t sure where I was going to go yet, but then we started talking a lot, and she goes ‘hey, you should do this, it’s a lot of fun’, so she really helped me out with that decision,” Shyann said.

Shyann is one of two Seguin seniors, along with St. Mary’s signee Vanessa Garza, to be varsity members of four consecutive UIL playoff teams. She was named First Team All-District as a junior in 2017 after posting a .417 batting average and 27 RBIs, and was voted District Newcomer of the Year as a sophomore in 2016 after her first season as a full-time starter at second base.

“Shyann is one of those special kids,” Seguin head coach John Garcia said. “She comes from a softball family. They’re all good kids, they’re all good ballplayers, and she’s going on to the next level as expected. She’s going to rejoin her sister, and it’s going to be fun to watch them at the next level playing together.”

Atchley also noted that Schreiner’s academic and campus environment make the small university in Kerrville the perfect fit.

“It’s a good education program, and that’s what I was really going for, because I want to be a teacher,” Atchley said. “The town is beautiful, and I love the scenery and stuff, and the coaches are great – they’re so nice.”
