Greensboro College Head Coach Kama Tucker announced that six student athletes have committed to attend and play softball at Greensboro College. “We’ve added speed, pitching and offense which brings more depth to a talented team,” Tucker said. “We’re happy we have honor students in the group and expect all of our players to exhibit the character, work ethic, and passion.”

A native of Statesville, NC, Hannah Pennell pitched for West Iredell High School and the Carolina Cobras. Pennell was first team all conference, all-county, all-district and and all-state for WIHS. “Hannah is a pitcher who is strong with her spins and speed,” Tucker said. “She will add needed depth to our pitching rotation and to The Pride softball family.”

Reihle Kash is from Spotsylvania, Va. and Massaponax High School. She played travel ball with Richmond Ruckus. “Reihle is a great student and a talented pitcher. She was her conference’s player of the year,” said Tucker. “Reihle has the drive and work ethic to make an immediate impact in all areas of life here at GC. She can pitch and hit and we expect big things from her.”

Utility player Devin Harris arrives via from Kittrell, N.C. and South Granville High School. She was on the NC Dominators travel team and previously played with rising sophomore Brittany Evans. “Devin will be joining us a utility player who may also play volleyball here at GC,” Tucker noted.

Brittany David joins GC from Concord, NC, Northwest Cabarrus High School and the Denver Dazzle travel team. “Britt will pitch for us and her offensive skills will also be a valuable asset to our program,” Tucker said. “Everyone knows like the name ‘Brittany’ at GC softball! We lost one, but added Brittany David so we have four again!”

Amber Pearmen arrives from nearby Trinity N.C. The middle infielder/utility player was a member of the Trinity High School and Triad Twisters teams. “Amber is a player with a drive to excel athletically and academically and we are excited to add her to our program,” Tucker said. Pearmen played with rising junior Pride softballer Hayley Hicks at Trinity HS.

Winston Salem’s Kim Blust played for both Reagan High School and the Fire & Ice team. An outfielder, she was a first team all conference honoree. “Kim possesses offensive power and will be looked on to replace some of the graduating seniors,” said Tucker. “Kim plays hard, with desire and has an impressive work ethic. That will continue to help her reach new heights athletically and we know she will make a difference here at GC.”
