    Tech Softball Inks All-State Pitcher for 2018

    KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Head coach Greg Stewart announced recently the addition of Sarah Abramson (Milwaukie, Ore.) to the Oregon Tech softball team beginning the 2018 season. 

    Abramson, a three-year starting pitcher at Rex Putnam High School, just completed her junior season, leading the Kingsmen to the quarterfinals of the 2016 OSAA 5A Softball State Championship.

    Prior to this season Abramson led RPHS to a runner-up finish in the 5A championship in 2014 and a 5A OSAA State title in 2015.  As a sophomore Abramson was a Northwest Oregon Conference (NWOC) first-team all-league selection, NWOC Pitcher of the Year and moved on to gain 5A Pitcher of the Year and 5A State Championship Player of the Game accolades in 2015.  Abramson went on to earn NWOC first-team all-league and Pitcher of the Year accolades and was again honored as a 5A First-Team All-State selection in 2016. 

    “I am thrilled to sign a pitcher of Sarah’s caliber to our program, as she will be a key component to our success in the future,” said Stewart.  “As a junior, she is proven to be one of the best pitchers in Oregon and will be an immediate impact for us in the circle in 2018.”

    KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Head coach Greg Stewart announced the signing of Rashaun Sells (Grants Pass, Ore.) to the Oregon Tech softball squad for the 2017 season. 

    Sells, a transfer from Clackamas Community College, was a two-time first-team Southern Region All-Star infielder helping the Cougars to a Runner-Up finish at the NWAC Softball Championship Tournament in 2014. 

    During her freshman season at CCC, Sells batted .475 with 57 hits, including 11 doubles, six homeruns and 29 RBI.  Sells had a banner season as a sophomore in 2014, batting .465 with 67 hits.  Sells roped 18 doubles, three triples and 13 homeruns while scoring 49 run and driving in 71 runs.

    For her efforts Sells was named to the NFCA Louisville Slugger/NWAC All-American Team in both 2013 and 2014.

    "I am looking forward to adding a good student and accomplished player like Rashaun to our team next year”, exclaimed Stewart.  “She is the type of hitter that can help us fill some holes in our line-up with the departure of some outstanding seniors. Rashaun had a very good career at Clackamas and is a good defensive infielder who can make an immediate impact offensively."

    Rashaun is the daughter of Arron Sells and Leann and Darryl Haven and plans to major in medical imaging technology beginning at Oregon Tech this fall.
