Ellie Wiese signed a letter of intent to play softball with the Morningside Mustangs. She will continue in her position as pitcher, but said she could also be playing another position as she’s a “utility player.”

Wiese chose to attend Morningside after talking to the head softball coach Jessica Sitzmann and assistant coach Brooke Pruner. She said that they made her feel welcome right away, like a family. She loved the feel of the family atmosphere and knew that this is where she wanted to be, the family she wanted to be a part of.

Wiese will pursue a degree in Elementary Education.
