Being a California native herself, it should come as no surprise that Frank Phillips College Head Softball Coach Jenneffer Kohler has been busy on the West Coast, where she has been able to add four new players to her club for the upcoming season.
Coming to Borger this fall will be pitcher Devin Dean, outfielder Brianna Rodriguez and infielders Madilyne Logan and Lucinda Ponce. All four are coming from the state of California.
Dean, a graduate of Alta Loma High School, will bring experience in the pitcher’s circle to the Lady Plainsmen, with Kohler commenting, “We are excited to have Devin join the program. She has played highly competitive softball in Southern California, so we are looking for her to come in and have a positive impact on the program.”
Logan, a shortstop from Canyon Springs High School, is someone Kohler believes will develop into a solid middle infielder that will help the team stay in games with great defense, but will also contribute at the plate.
Kohler commented, “We are looking for Madilyne to help move the program in the positive direction we are trying to take it.”
Arlington High School grad Rodriguez will add the element of speed to the team, an area the Lady Plainsmen are looking to improve in over this past season.
Due to the Lady Plainsmen losing three outfielders to graduation, Rodriguez will have the opportunity to come in and have the ability to contribute to the team from day one.
Of Ponce, Kohler said, “Luci will come in and be a solid lefty bat in the middle of the lineup. She has a very high softball IQ coming in, and played for a competitive travel program out of Southern California, the San Jose Lady Sharks. She should fit in with the team and play well in the conference.”
Kohler added, “Coach Grider saw her play in a tournament and was surprised that she was still available and was very impressed right away with her field presence and talent.”
Ponce was an infielder at Overfelt High School.
