Florida Gulf Coast University is proud to announce the signing of two graduating high school seniors for next year's softball team:
1) Heather McChesney--5'4" pitcher and 3B from Lehigh High School, where she has been a four-year varsity starter and will graduate in the top 10% of her class. One of the main reasons that the Lightning have been so successful over the last three years is that she has pitched every significant game over that span (32 wins and 15 losses with a 0.36 ERA and 408 strikeouts). She has been named Lee County Player of the Year, All-Area team each of the last three years, and All-State 1st team and 2nd team over the last two years, respectively. She plans to study Physical Therapy at FGCU.
2) Annie Voyles--5'10" pitcher and catcher from Trenton High School in Bronson, FL. She will graduate as one of the top 10 students at THS in 2003. Annie is Trenton's High School Heisman Nominee, has been named to the all-area team each of the last three years and has been selected to the All-State 1st team the last two seasons. She has been the main pitcher on her high school team each of the last three years but she is also very tough at the plate where she has boasted .400+ batting averages the last two seasons.
Both players are very athletic and will have an impact at various positions next season.
