PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Providence College softball Head Coach Kerri Jacklets announced that student-athletes Logan Even (Aubrey, Texas), Taylor Huntly (Las Vegas, Nev.) and McKall Miller (Ashburn, Va.) signed National Letters of Intent to attend Providence College beginning in September 2013.
Even, an infielder and utility player, attends Aubrey High School in Aubrey, Texas, and plays for Coach Shon Ranton. Her batting average of over .500 has helped Aubrey reach the Class 3A playoffs during the past two seasons. She has twice been named to the All-Area softball team and is a three-time All-District selection. Last spring, she finished with a .529 batting average with 14 doubles and 32 RBI. Even plays travel ball for the American Freedom Gold located in Dallas, Texas. She is also a member of the National Honor Society of Leaders.
"Logan has been the epitome of a team leader," said Ranton. "She's someone who always gives you the best effort she can. She leads by example. She's a very solid hitter, and she's a very solid fielder with a strong arm. And she always knows the situation."
Huntly, a pitcher, attends Centennial High School in Las Vegas, Nev. She helped Centennial capture a Nevada High School 4A State Championship in 2012. Huntly was named to the All-Division team the past three seasons and to the All-State team the last two seasons. She received the Scholar Athlete Award three times. Huntly plays summer ball for the Las Vegas Rage Gold in Las Vegas, Nev.
"Taylor is a great and quality person who works very hard," said pitching coach Shan McDonald. "These two things are more important than any other factor. To back that up, she has talent to go with that quality of character. She is very excited and ready to learn! I feel it is a great fit."
Miller, an infield and outfield player, attends Broad Run High School in Asburn, Va. She is a four year varsity starter and was named to the VHSCA 2012 AAA Softball All-State First Team. In 2012, she also was ranked third in the state of Va., and received All-District First Team and All-Region First Team honors. She was named team captain and MVP during that season. During 2011, she was named All-District First Team and All-Region Second Team. Miller plays summer ball for the Vienna Stars Gold in Virginia for Coach Tony Rollings. She is also a member of the National Honor Society School Scholars and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
"Providence is getting a very versatile player," said Rollings. "Mckall has played both middle infield positions and is also a strong outfielder and hitter. She has been playing for the Vienna Stars 18u Gold team since her freshman year. We wish her the best at Providence and expect to see her excel at the next level."
"The Friars are excited to welcome McKall, Taylor and Logan to Providence College next year," said Jacklets. "They have shown that they are very capable students and well-tested athletes. McKall and Logan will add depth to our infield and Taylor will help round out our pitching staff."
