Lesa â€śMcKenzieâ€ť Murphy signed her letter of intent on Monday on the FPC campus.
She will graduate from Pearland High School in Pearland, TX this spring. She is a second baseman and an outfielder who plays for her high school and a travel team, the Texas Evolution.
â€śI believe that 'Murph' will bring a good presence to the team. She is a left handed hitter who handles the bat well and should add some speed and defensive depth to our team next year,â€ť says head coach, Lucas Grider.
Two other players have committed, but cannot make it to the campus for their signings.
