Notre Dame Softball Signs Five to National Letters of Intent

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- Notre Dame's softball team has signed five high school seniors to national letters of intent, head coach Liz Miller announced. Shortstop Rebecca Eimen (Mannford, Okla.), outfielder Angela Grimmer (Crown Point, Ind.), centerfielder Jenny Kriech (Indianapolis, Ind.), pitcher Michelle Moschel (Naples, Fla.) and catcher Jarrah Myers (Carbondale, Kan.) make up Notre Dame's class of 2002.

"We are really excited about this class," said Miller. "We expect this class to come in and make an impact on our program immediately. When our current senior class graduates, this class can fill our needs in the lineup."

The switch-hitting Eimen was named defensive player of the year in both softball and basketball as a junior at Mannford High School. She was also named an all-state shortstop in 1997. Eimen, currently ranked first in her senior class, also starred in track at Mannford, qualifying for the state championship four times in the 100 and 200 meters.

Grimmer earned all-state honorable mention honors from Hoosier Diamond after hitting .343 as a junior with a 1.000 fielding percentage at shortstop while also stealing 32 bases in 1997. As a freshman, she played in every inning of every game at Adrean High School. This past summer she hit .352 with her Starpath summer team.

The left-handed Kriech was a 1997 first-team all-state selection while leading the Indianapolis area in both hitting and triples. Hoosier Diamond honored her in 1996 with the fifth-best batting average in the state at Perry Meridian High School, where she twice was named the team's MVP.

Moschel was a perfect 32-0 on the mound in her first two years on the mound at Naples High School. She allowed just two earned runs in 198 innings pitched with 374 strikeouts. The 1996 Florida high school softball player of the year led her team to the state championship in 1995 and 1996 as a two-time first-team all-state selection.

Myers led Sante Fe Trail High School in hitting as a catcher in each of her first three seasons, including a .512 batting average in 1997 with no strikeouts in 80 at bats. She hit .569 in the summer of 1996 with her summer team, the Topeka Outlaws. Fastpitch World selected Myers as one of its high school All-Americans in 1997, while the NFCA named Myers an All-America scholar.
