PRICE, UTAH – Utah State Eastern softball coach Brittani Richins recently announced the signing of five recruits for her 2018 recruiting class.

Coach’s Take: “Lyndsey is a catcher that has had a lot of time behind the plate and has a strong arm, which were excited to add to our team.  She can also play other position, which makes her a double threat.”- Coach Richins

Helped Box Elder to a Region Championship and an appearance in the 4A State Playoffs. She also played varsity volleyball for the Bees.
 Coach’s Take: I have watched Nyah play for about 2 years and really like the way that she manages game not only in the circle but at the plate and first base as well.  She will be a great well-rounded player for us for next year.” –Richins

High School: In 2017, she helped Union reach to a 20-9 record while batting .318 with 27 RBIs, 28 hits, and 19 runs. Helped Union reach the 3A State playoffs the past three seasons including her freshman year.
Coach‘s Take: “Madison will add to our pitching staff with her movement and change in speeds on her pitches.  She made a huge adjustment when she came to our practice and we like to see players that are willing to make adjustments fast.” – Richins

Coach‘s Take: We recruited Brynn for her hitting and her ability to run into fences.  I watched Brynn play a couple times and she is not afraid to sacrifice her body for the ball.  She is a great outfielder and wants to compete to win,” -Richins
