'Morgan will be great asset for our program,' commented head coach Chad Slyter. 'She has the ability and make up to have a great career in a Viking uniform. Morgan is a strong pitcher in the circle that has experience at a high level and can also swing a big bat at the plate and provide some offensive spark to the lineup. Her ability to play the corner positions will also serve our team well.'
