Megan Moore, a recruit from Topeka, KS, was the first official Class of 2011 signee for the Monarchs, is a talented outfielder and first baseman. According to softball head coach Kerry Kasper, Moore will "bring lots of energy and leadership to the team. She will certainly lead by example on and off the field, as she also plans to work hard off the field towards a degree to get her into pharmacy. She will help us out in the outfield as well as the busy corner of first base."
Amy Wendleton joins the Monarchs from William Chrisman High School in Independence, Mo. and is a versatile hitter and fielder. Kasper expects her to contribute a lot, noting that "Amy will be an extremely versatile player for us. She will bring speed to our lineup and has numerous skills that will be a threat at the plate. I am anxious to see her display her skills and cross the plate for us many times in 2012! She will be working on a degree in education, and will help us out in the outfield and middle infield positions."
