By Kelly Hansen published November 22, 2010

University of Colorado at Colorado Springs softball coach Scott Peterson announced on Monday the addition of Lindsey Buck from Westfield High School (San Diego, Calif.) to his team with her signing of a National Letter of Intent. Adding Buck to the formidable pitching staff of Jenna Mott, Becca Smith, and Jessica Belsterling will lead to a deeper pitching staff in 2011-12.

"You can never have enough pitchers on the staff," said Peterson, "Not only is Lindsey a pitcher that has been facing some of the top competition in Southern California, she is also a quality first baseman with a pretty good bat."

Buck is a Union Tribune Scholar-Athlete that was undefeated her junior year at Westfield High School, utilizing five pitches - fastball, change-up, screwball, drop ball, and drop-curveball.  Before Lindsey takes to the field to lead her high school team this spring, she will compete in numerous California tournaments for the San Diego Mystic Gold.

"UCCS softball is very proud and excited to have Lindsey Buck joining us next fall.  She throws very well, and gives us flexibility with the ability to play another position," continued Peterson, "Lindsey fell in love with UCCS and is a great fit for us. She has so much personality. Lindsey will be a great teammate and leader. We can't wait for her to get to Colorado."
