She also set a school record with 276 putouts as a sophomore. Logan was also named to the Sun Times Top 100 as a junior.
Megan Hedstrom-University of North Dakota
Megan Hedstrom - Pitcher/Utility
Coming to UND from Palatine, Ill., Hedstrom is a four-year letterwinner in softball and gymnastics at Palatine High School. The right-handed pitcher was named to the all-area team and all-conference team.
An honor-roll student, she plans on majoring in broadcast journalism and is the daughter of Matthew and Dana Hedstrom.
Oakley said: "In graduating three pitchers, we needed to find pitchers who can come in right away and contribute. Megan is a pitcher who can do that, and do it well. She hits her spots well, and will be able to give us important innings as a freshman. Beyond that, she's just a good, solid athlete who can adapt and play several positions."
Hedstrom said on choosing UND: "It is a very good program and the girls make it a fun team."
