ALBION, INDIANA â€“ Central Noble senior Rohni Beck recently signed her NJCAA Letter of Intent to play softball for Ancilla College in the 2011-2012 season. She becomes the first signee for the Lady Chargers softball team for next year.
Beck, a three year letter winner for the Cougars as a catcher, was a member of the Northeast Corner Honorable Mention All-Conference team last season and has earned Defensive and Most Improved awards from Central Noble in her career. She posted a .338 batting average last season and has thrown out over 57% of the runners who have attempted to steal on her in her career. Beck is currently two walks away from breaking the Cougar record for walks in a career.
â€śRohni is a driven individual,â€ť commented Central Noble coach Dave Weeks. â€śShe will work hard to achieve her goals but always works towards team success above all.â€ť
When asked what made Ancilla the right choice for her, Beck was very straightforward. â€śCollege softball has been my dream since I was a little girl. Ancilla is not very far from home and they have a good medical program. Everything just fell into place.â€ť
â€śRohni is a very focused young lady,â€ť began Ancilla coach Scott Reese. â€śShe exudes confidence and will be a welcome addition behind the plate for us. I am looking forward to watching her growth and Iâ€™m excited that she has decided to join the Ancilla softball family.â€ť
While at Ancilla, Beck will begin work on her degree in Health Sciences. Rohni is the daughter of Lisa Ferguson and John Beck.
