Lenoir-Rhyne Head Softball Coach Shena Hollar has announced the signing of four players for the 2014 season. Sarah Kenley, Dakota Keller, Sydney Landreth and Kimberly Robinson will play for the Bears next year.



Robinson (Boone, N.C.) is a pitcher and first baseman at Watauga High School and is a member of the Catawba Valley Storm travel team. Robinson is a two-time All-Northwestern 4A Conference selection (2011-12) and was the team's Most Valuable Player in 2011.
"Kimberly (Robinson) will be a good asset to our program on and off the field," said Hollar. "She is an outstanding student-athlete who will add to our pitching staff and also plays first base. Her biggest attribute will be the offensive power she brings.


Kenley (Charlotte, N.C.) plays catcher at Lincoln Charter High School in Denver, N.C., and is a member of the North Carolina Sundevils travel team.
As a prep player, Kenley was a three-time All-PCAC (2010-12) honoree and has been named the team Most Valuable Player for the past three years. Kenley was also an All-Charlotte Observer selection and was named the North Carolina 1A State Player Of The Year.
"Sarah (Kenley) is a dominating catcher who controls the game well, has a tremendous arm and has a big stick on the offensive side," said Hollar.


Keller (Mooresboro, N.C.) plays outfield at Crest High School and is a part of the Foothills Heat summer team. Keller is a three-time All-Big South 3A Conference pick (2010-12) and a two-time all-district and all-state honoree (2011-12).
In addition, Keller was named the 2011 District Player Of The Year and was an All-Charlotte Observer First-Team selection last spring.
"Dakota (Keller) can cover a lot of ground in the outfield and has a strong arm," said Hollar. "Dakota also has a big bat with deceiving power."


Landreth (Disputanta, Va.) is a first baseman and catcher at Prince George High School in Prince George, Va. Landreth also plays summer ball for the Virginia Lady Titans and the Richmond Ruckus. Landreth garnered All-Central District honors three times (2010-12) and was an academic all-district selection as well.
"Sydney (Landreth) is a true lefty that plays first base and catches," said Hollar. "I love the idea of having a lefty first baseman and one with a strong bat in the lineup. Sydney is a good student in the classroom and it carries over to the field."


Lenoir-Rhyne went 48-13 last season and earned a trip to the playoffs for the seventh straight year. The Bears also won the South Atlantic Conference Regular Season and Tournament Championships for the third consecutive season in 2012. L-R opens the year on February 6, 2013, on the road against Belmont Abbey in a doubleheader beginning at 1:30 p.m.
