ILCC softball team signs catcher

Tue 1-7-2020

ESTHERVILLE - Iowa Lakes Community College softball coach Katie Larson has announced the signing of a catcher from Wisconsin for the 2020-21 recruiting class.

Myah Ehlenfeldt attends Cochran-Fountain City High School.

"Myah is another outstanding athlete in our 2020 class," said Larson. "She fits right into the type of student-athletes that we are trying to recruit into the program. She is a quality student, athlete, and a genuinely kind-hearted person."

Ehlenfeldt has seen great success both behind the plate in the catching position and also in the batter's box. Last year, she batted .475 with a .514 on-base percentage. She had 29 hits including eight doubles and three home runs. Ehlenfeldt had a .963 fielding percentage and caught 36% of runners trying to stealing. She has been an academic all-Dairyland Conference selection in her freshman, sophomore, and junior seasons.

Ehlenfeldt has also lettered in golf and earned 4.0 scholar honors.

"We cannot wait to welcome Myah and her family to Iowa Lakes," Larson commented. "Myah was a good high school player, but I believe her best softball is still in front of her. She loves the game and is like a sponge soaking up information that is given to her. She wants to be better and understands that to do that hard work needs to be put in. I cannot wait to work with her these next two years and see all that she can accomplish."
