Dawson Community College Head Coach Jim LeProwse is pleased to announce that he has received a verbal commitment from Mary Birdwell out of Fergus County High School in Lewistown, Montana for the 2013-2014 season. She will graduate in 2013 and continue her education and softball careers at DCC.
Mary Birdwell, who will play one of the corner positions in the infield for the Buccaneers, was a 2012 Montana Central A Second team All-Conference selection for the 2012 state tournament qualifying Fergus County Eagles. Mary carried a .462 batting average through 65 at bats. She is also very patient at the plate being walked a total of 19 times during her junior season. Coach LeProwse commented that Mary is very athletic, has good arm strength and is very fundamentally sound in the infield. Mary comes from a great high school program and will be a great addition to our program.
