Riverside, CA - The Golden Eagles women's softball team held a signing ceremony for their 2013 recruiting class this past Tuesday evening.  The softball team welcomed 12 new student-athletes into the program.

 

The ceremony, held at the La Sierra University Alumni Center, consisted of returning players, the new recruits and their family and friends.  Assistant coach, Willie Neal, introduced the returning players, followed by an introduction of each of the new 12 recruits.  After the introductions, each individual signed their letter of intent that was subsequently signed by athletic director Javier Krumm and head coach Tom Ogle, who personally welcomed them to the program.

 

All but on of the signees will start at La Sierra this coming September.  The exception is pitcher Elizabeth Rivera, who is completing her junior year at Centennial High School (Las Vegas, Nev.). 

 

By position, the Golden Eagles signed six infielders, four pitchers, two catchers, and two outfielders. 

 

With 12 returning players and 11 players set to join the squad this fall, the Golden Eagles continue the building process that began a year ago under Coach Ogle and his staff.

 

"This year's recruiting class will bring a combination of strong pitching and power hitting," said Ogle.  "With the growing maturity of our returning players and the addition of the incoming class, it should make for a substantially improved team."
