Powers on Reuble and Davis: “Alyssa and Lindsay will solidify our pitching staff for years to come. We were very fortunate to sign two pitchers of their caliber in one year. With our game, everything starts in the circle, and I believe we have set ourselves up for a lot of success in the coming years by adding these two athletes.”
Outfield, R/R, Torrance, Calif./North
Megan Ottino, a four-year varsity starter and 2013 team captain at North High School in Torrance, Calif., led her high school team to a 24-8 record in 2012. In 2010, she helped lead her high school team to a second place finish in the CIF finals, and in 2012, she was named to the All-League Team.

Helping USA Athletics qualify for the ASA Gold Nationals, she hit two back-to-back home runs in a national qualifying game.
Powers on Ottino: “Megan will roam the outfield for us next season. Megan's power at the plate will be a nice addition to the middle of our lineup and we look forward to her driving in runs at the new Logan Field. She is versatile and can also play infield if needed.”
Second base/outfield/shortstop, L/R, Keizer, Ore./McNary
Paige Bouska, a four-year varsity starter from McNary High School in Keizer, Ore., helped lead the Celtics to a 2010 league championship (18-0 league record) and to the 2012 state semifinals.

At the club level, she currently competes with the Oregon Panthers Gold and helped lead the Washington Ladyhawks Miller Gold to the Oregon 16A state title in 2011.
Powers on Bouska: “Paige will compete in the middle
infield for us next season. She brings a
solid glove and the slapping element on the offensive side. She is a true utility type player that can
play multiple positions at a high level giving our team much needed depth
throughout the field.”
