Valley City State University Viking Softball has signed Lindsey White, Menahga, MN to a letter of intent to play softball at VCSU starting in the fall of 2013.
White is in her second year at Itasca Community College (ICC), where last year she pitched to a 17-7 record, helping the ICC Vikings reach an overall record of 39-13 on their way to a berth in the NJCAA Division III National Softball Tournament.
At ICC in the spring of 2012, White struck out 156 batters in 148 innings pitched and gave up only 26 walks while sporting a 1.23 earned run average. Overall, she was the number sixth rated pitcher in NJCAA Division III softball in the nation. White also hit for a .358 batting average with 19 RBI and a .469 on base percentage. For her efforts, White was named to the Region 13B All-Tournament Team.
White attended Menahga High School where she excelled in softball, basketball and volleyball. She was a three time All-Conference selection in softball and was selected to the 2010 All State Tournament Team as well as being an All-State Player selection in 2011. White was selected as Menahga High School's Most Valuable Player in each of her last three seasons and was also the Conference Most Valuable Player in her senior season.
In 2009 and 2010, White was an All-Conference selection in both volleyball and basketball and added an All-Conference selection in basketball in 2011.
White graduated from Menahga High School with Honors and was also active in the National Honor Society and the Menahga Leadership Team. At Itasca Community College, she has also been a member of the volleyball team.
'Lindsey is going to have an immediate impact on our pitching staff when she comes to Valley City State,' said Slyter. 'She pitched against us last year in a junior varsity game and our coaching staff came away impressed with her ability. She throws hard, locates very well and will have pitched in possibly two national tournaments. That experience will be valuable for her in her next Viking uniform. I expect great things from her in the circle beginning next year.'
