BOURBONNAIS, Ill. – Kristina Shahan, a senior at Plainfield Central High School, has signed a letter of intent to continue her education and playing career at Olivet Nazarene University as a member of the softball team.
“When I walked on campus I felt at home,” comments Shahan of her decision. “I loved the campus and knew it was right for me. When I met Coach [Ritchie] Richardson I knew I wanted to play for him.”
Shahan, a catcher, is a three-year letter winner at Plainfield Central under the direction of head coach Anne Campbell. As a member of the DuPage Diamond Dawgs summer travel team, she compiled a batting average of .426 with 43 hits, nine triples, 10 doubles and 10 walks.
Shahan maintains a 4.35 grade point average in high school and intends to major in accounting while at Olivet. She is the daughter of Chris and Karen Shahan.
