Softball Signs Pitcher from Central Texas

Lees-McRae College softball coach Julie Kennedy recently announced the signing of one of Central Texas' best all around players; Magen West.

West finished her senior season ranking high in several statistical categories. The Whitney, TX native ranked 1st in RBI, (49), 2nd in strikeouts, (235), and fourth in both hits, (48), and pitching wins with 20. She also posted a 1.07 ERA in District and a .421 batting average.

Looking forward to the change of scenery, Magen is excited about seeing snow and experiencing the resort appearance of Banner Elk, North Carolina. Magen plans to pursue her degree in Physical Education while at Lees-McRae with ambitions of one day coaching. She chose Lees-McRae because of the opportunity to make an immediate impact on the softball field.

"Magen West is not only a great player but a great person" says Kennedy. "She goes after what she wants and does not settle for second best. I couldn't be happier that Magen chose to play at Lees-McRae."
