KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Head coach Greg Stewart announced that Jacey Conklin (Roseburg, Ore.) recently signed a letter-of-intent and will join the Oregon Tech softball squad beginning this fall. Conklin is the final signee of the 2016 class.
Conklin, a four-year starter at catcher for Roseburg High School, was a three-time all-conference selection for the Indians and capped a brilliant prep career at RHS after being named the 2015 Southwest Conference Player of the Year and a 2015 6A First-Team All-State selection.
Conklin hit .492 (32-for-65) with two homers and 23 RBI during league action, while finishing the season at a .500 clip (40-80), including three homeruns, 30 RBI, 30 runs and 13 stolen bases.
"I am glad that Jacey has chosen Oregon Tech to continue her education as she will be a very good addition to our 2016 roster,” mentioned Stewart. “Jacey is a talented defensive catcher with a strong arm. Offensively, she swings the bat well with the ability to hit for both average and power while also being a threat to steal bases."
Jacey is the daughter of Mark and Stacey Conklin and plans to major in business at Oregon Tech beginning this fall.
Oregon Tech is coming off a Cascade Collegiate Conference regular-season championship and 4th place showing at the 2015 NAIA Softball World Series.
