Oregon Tech Announces First Group of Recruits for 2013
KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. - Oregon Tech head softball coach Greg Stewart announced the addition of three freshmen to the 2013 recruiting class. Joining the Owl roster this fall is Alyssa Davis (Hillsboro, Ore.), McKenzie Shrum (Glide, Ore.) and Adrienne Pace (Klamath Falls, Ore.).
In 2011 Pace was instrumental in leading Henley High School to a 4A State Runner–up finish, where she was named to the Skyline first team all-conference squad, along with First-Team All-State honors in 2011. For the Hornets, Pace batted .451 with a .491 OBP that included nine doubles, a homerun and 34 RBI’s. In 2010 Pace was also named all-conference and a third-team all-state selection.
“Adrienne is a very good hitter that can give our program another player that can swing the bat for both average and power,” said Stewart. “She is a corner infielder with great hands and a very strong and accurate arm.”
Adrienne is the daughter of Mark and Dorey Pace of Klamath Falls
Davis was instrumental in helping Glencoe High School capture the 5A State Title in 2010, where she was named to the first-team all-league squad and First-Team All-State where she batted .413 on the season. In 2011, Davis hit .330 with seven doubles, a pair of triples, and three homeruns as Glencoe captured the 6A Pacific Coast Conference Championship.
“Alyssa is a very good athlete that could see playing time at several positions in our program. She is primarily an infielder, but with her speed and versatility, she is good enough to play in the outfield as well,” commented Stewart. “She is a complete offensive player being able to hit for both average and power while also being a threat to steal bases.”
Alyssa is the daughter of Justin and Tauyna Davis and plans on majoring in health sciences this fall.
Shrum was the sparkplug for the 2011 3A State Champions, while leading Glide High School to a perfect 28-0 overall mark last season. In the title game Shrum went 3-for-4 with two runs to go with two RBI and 3 stolen bases. Last season Shrum batted .437 with over a .500 on base % during the regular season, while stealing 33 bases in 33 attempts. As a sophomore Shrum stole 25 bases. The two-time first-team all-league player was also a First-Team All-State infielder in 2011 and picked up Second-Team All-State accolades in 2010.
“McKenzie will be a great addition to our team in 2013,” said Stewart. “She is a solid middle infielder that can really run. She also swings the bat well and will give us some needed team speed on the base paths.”
McKenzie is the daughter of Randy and Lori Shrum and plans on pursuing a degree in radiological sciences beginning this fall.
