Softball Signs Two

Oregon St. Softball coach Kirk Walker advised Wednesday that the Beavers have signed two northwest players to National Letters of Intent during the early season signing period for the 2011 season.

Hannah Bouska from McNary High School in Keizer, Oregon, and Isabelle Batayola from Roosevelt High School in Seattle, Washington are the new committs coming to Oregon State in 2011.

Both Hannah and Izzy are tremendous athletes who have dynamic and explosive skills. It is always exciting to add great athletes from the Northwest that have Pac-10 level playing skills.

Bouska, an infielder, has been named a three time Central Valley All-Conference selection, also being named All-State one season. She has consistently hit over .400 and posted an on-base percentage of over .500 at all levels of play that she's competed in.

Bouska has been a multi-sport athlete, competing in basketball and volleyball, as well as running varsity cross country.

Hannah has been playing at the Gold level for a while now and competed in the Gold Nationals as a junior. We see Hannah's explosive speed and dynamic style of play to be an exciting addition to our program. She brings great speed and surprising power and is a solid defensive player.

Batayola, an infielder and utility player, is coming off a junior season where she served as team captain that culminated in All-King County Second Team honors at shortstop, and being named Roosevelt High School's Most Valuable Player. She received the same accolades as a sophomore and was named to the All-King County Honorable Mention squad as a freshman.

In travel ball, Batayola was a member of the ASA 16A National Championship team, was a Colorado Fireworks Champion and Valley Invite Champion. She played for the NW Blaze for the 2009 season.

Izzy brings a ton of versatility and some very high level experience. She played for the Beaverton Blaze 16U team that won the ASA National Championship this last summer. Being an integral part of a championship level team is a very special experience that helps a player set high level expectations personally as well as team wise.
