KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – Oregon Tech head coach Greg Stewart announced recently that Emilee Eastman (Hillsboro, Ore.) will join the softball program beginning next fall.
Eastman, a four-year player at Glencoe High School, helped the Crimson Tide to the 6A State Championship game in 2013 and to a 76-12 overall record the last three years at GHS.
During Emilee's ASA 2013 summer season, with Oregon Thunder, Eastman batted .464 with 45 hits, nine doubles, two triples and a pair of homeruns. Her Thunder team finished their summer off at the 16A USA/ASA Nationals in Sunnyvale, Calif. where she hit a blistering 12-for-16 in the series.
“I am pleased Emilee has chosen Oregon Tech, as she will be a good addition to our squad for the next four years,” said Stewart. “She is a good hitting infielder that plays third base for two very strong programs in Glencoe High and the Oregon Thunder ASA program. She has the ability to be a good offensive threat in our conference as she makes a lot of contact but also hits with power.”
Emilee is the daughter of Jason and Lea Eastman and has a younger sister Alivia. Emilee’s excited about joining the Oregon Tech family and plans to major in medical imaging beginning this fall.
