LIBERAL, Kan. – A second Lady Saint softball player signed on with a Division I school as Leena Mortensen signed with the University of Detroit Mercy on Monday. Mortensen joins Jullian Atteberry as the two Lady Saints who will continue their career in the Division I level.
Despite missing the second half of the season with an injury, Mortensen finished her sophomore campaign as a 2nd Team All-Jayhawk selection as the utility player. She led the Lady Saints in batting average in conference games, batting .526 against Jayhawk Opponents, which was fourth in the conference. Her 29 career doubles ranks 8th all-time in the Seward County record books.
Mortensen will play for Head Coach John Conway, who enters his fifth season at the helm for the Titans in 2018-19. She will look to help improve a Titans squad that went 14-30 a season ago amidst a 7th place finish in the Horizon League.
