CSB: Augie Adds Transfer From Rapid City
Augustana College head softball coach Gretta Melsted today announced that Ashley Meyer of Rapid City, S.D., has decided to transfer to Augustana and play for the Vikings.

Meyer is transferring to Augustana after playing last season at Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville, Iowa. She will have three seasons of eligibility remaining at Augustana.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have Ashley Meyer join the Augustana family," Melsted said. "Ashley is a great fit for our school and program. She is a tremendous athlete and student, but most importantly a person of integrity and character. I have been watching Ashley pitch for several years. She has an unbelievable work ethic and a great competitive spirit. Her accomplishments as a high school player and at Iowa Lakes Community College speak for themselves. We look forward to her continuing her success at Augustana and are excited about the talents that she brings to an already very talented pitching staff."

Meyer had a stellar freshman season at Iowa Lakes. She posted a 27-5 record with 2 saves while helping the Lakers to a 58-9 record and a runner-up finish at the Region XI tournament. Meyer appeared in 35 games and pitched 187 innings. She compiled a 0.824 earned run average while tossing 18 shutouts. She allowed just 22 earned runs adn 106 hits while striking out 211 hitters. Her 0.824 ERA and 211 strikeouts led the nation in NJCAA Division II.

As a result, Meyer was named to the All-Region XI First Team as well as the Louisville Slugger/NFCA NJCAA Division II All-America First Team.

Meyer was a three-time Class AA All-State selection for Rapid City Stevens High School. She helped the Raiders win two state titles. In addition, she had a successful club softball career. She helped the Flames White squad win the 2006 U-18 ASA State Championship and the Sioux Falls Flash win the 2007 U-16 ASA State Championship. She also played for the 2007 Triple Crown USA Team that played in Australia and New Zealand.

Meyer joins a recruiting class that already includes Shelby Thompson of Sioux Falls, S.D., Brittany Coufal of Lincoln, Neb., Theresa McMahon of Hartford, S.D., Jenny Brown of Omaha, Neb. and Chelsi Winskowski of Elk River, Minn.

Augustana posted a 31-23 overall record in 2009, including a 30-12 mark after opening the season 1-11. The Vikings also finished second in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference with a 20-5 league mark.
