COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio Dominican's softball program welcomes four players for the 2020-2021 academic year as a part of its 2020 recruiting class.
The four athletes signed national letters of intent during the NCAA's early signing period.
"We are thrilled about the four young ladies we have signed in the 2020 class so far," head coach Marcella Vanlandingham said. "Each one of them meets a specific need we have on our roster. They bring a combination of speed and power to the line up and all of them are outstanding defensive players. In the time I have spent getting to know them, it is clear they are great fits for our program. They are good students, outstanding people and will represent the core values of Panther softball. I am excited to welcome them to our softball family. I look forward to watching them in a Panther uniform and seeing their games develop in our program."
