TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State softball coach Shane Bouman announced this week the signing of three new players — Erika Crissman of Los Alamitos, Calif.; Brooke Riemenschneider of Chatham, Ill.; and Rylee Holland of Rochester.

“Erika is a speedy, athletic outfielder who comes from a great high school program and has played against some of the best competition in the country,” Bouman said. “Rylee is a hard-nosed, high energy athlete whose work ethic and competitive nature will be an immediate asset to our program … and Brooke is a fierce competitor who has pop in her bat.

“All three of these girls bring different aspects to the program and have the potential to make an immediate impact next year.”
