Yesterday Demon softball player Maddie Bohr signed her letter of intent to play softball at Lindenwood University in St. Charles Mo.
Bohr a Junior last year broke multiple records for the Demons, as well as the led the team in runs with 56, hits with 61, walks with 33, stolen bases with 24, on base percentage a .589, average with a .477, and posted a 12-4 pitching record with a 2.96 ERA.
Bohr says it is a easing feeling knowing that she can just focus on the game now.
“I feel great having the decision already made and knowing that the recruiting process is already over, because it was a hardship trying to figure out everything and trying to figure best quality college that’s going to suit me for all of the different things that I enjoy, and I think Lindenwood is a good choice for those,” Bohr said. “[Now] I won’t be worried about anything that is happening and just go and do my own thing and work with my teammates and continue to do what I’ve done in the past.”
Head coach Angie Schrader was also in attendance, and said that it is fitting that Bohr is the first one to sign, because she is the first person on the team to take care of business.
“It’s just who she is, she’s a leader on and off the field whether it is softball or academics or whatever she does, and it’s just fitting that she is the first person to take care of business,” Schrader said. “If we need to we can just go right down the line and take Sammy [Ellingson] as our next signing and we’ll follow with Kaitlin [Buchholz] so we can just move down the line with our seniors, and they’re all kids who have worked hard and they all deserve to keep moving forward.”
Schrader added that it won’t be long before the hitting facility opens, and they get back to softball
