Long sisters choose HU

FOR RELEASE
2008-07-08
 Logansport High School senior sisters Molly and Kahla Long have chosen to continue their softball careers at Huntington University next fall.

Molly was a four-year varsity pitcher for the Berries. As a senior, Molly was among the top three in several pitching categories in the North Central Conference. She won 14 games and posted a .57 ERA on the year. She also struck out 11.5 batters and allowed just .99 walks per seven innings. Molly was a three-time All-NCC selection and earned the honor of playing in the Indiana North-South All-Star game.

Kahla also was a four-year varsity letterwinner and received All-NCC honors as a junior. She will pitch and play first for the Foresters.

Coach Doug Gower is excited by the potential the sisters bring to the program. "I'm pleased that both Molly and Kahla chose HU. As twins, they are very close and have a great love for softball. Both will help with my pitching depth. I expect Molly to vault into a starter role complimenting Lauren Ward, who is back for her senior season. This should be a very exciting year for Huntington. Combining an All-Star/All-State pitcher in Molly with several returning upperclassmen should give us the tools to compete for the conference title and a berth in the NAIA tournament."
