Three Bakersfield College athletes signed letters of intent this week at four-year universities.
Sophomore standout pitcher Kylee Fahy signed with Texas A&M-Texarkana while track and field standouts Jacob Whitby and Derek Crawford signed with the Cal State Bakersfield track and field program.
Fahy, a Liberty High graduate, led the Renegades to consecutive Western State Conference championships. Fahy led the state in strikeouts both of her seasons at BC, with 290 in 2019 and 289 as a freshman in 2018.
Fahy also hit .351 this season with 46 hits and 25 RBIs.
Texas A&M-Texarkana is an NAIA program that plays in the Red River Athletic Conference.

Crawford, an Independence graduate, received all-conference second-team honors as part of the 1,600-meter relay team and was an honorable mention all-conference selection in the 200.
