Times All-City first-teamer Anna Dies has verbally committed to play softball for the Lady Techsters after she graduates from Haughton High School in 2015.
Consistently one of the top hitters in the area, Dies missed part of last season with a hand injury but still helped coach Hal Harlan’s team get into the LHSAA Class 5A state playoffs.
“When I went over there for a visit, I really liked the facilities and I really like coach (Mark) Montgomery,” Dies said on Sunday. “He also coached coach K (Lory Kowaleski) at Centenary, and she has helped me a lot. I know if he helped her, he can really help me become better.”
Dies, a two-time All-City pitcher after posting a 1.97 ERA with 119 strikeouts, is expected to be used primarily as an outfielder at Louisiana Tech. She hit .422 with three home runs for the Lady Bucs.
The junior-to-be joins Airline’s Katie Smith, Evangel’s Carolina Sanchez and North Caddo’s Kassie Harris as Lady Techster verbals. Additionally, former Evangel standout Lindsey Neyland has announced she is transferring to Tech.
