The Woodlands, TX- December 22, 2015 – Scrap Yard Dawg General Manager Kevin Shelton announced today the extension of Megan Low through the 2017 season. Low was acquired in the recently completed 2015 NPF Expansion Draft.
Low returns for her second year in the league. She was the Akron Racers’ sixth round pick in the 2015 NPF Draft. The UTSA Alum will be counted on to deliver right handed power in the Dawgs inaugural season.
At the completion of her senior year, Low was named the Conference USA Softball Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She finished her career at UTSA as the program’s all-time leader in walks (116), while she ranks among the top five in several offensive categories including extra-base hits (2nd/94), batting average (3rd/.359), RBIs (3rd/147), doubles (4th/44) and home runs (4th/48). The Spring native is just the second player in program history to earn first-team all-conference honors at least three times. She was also the first Roadrunner drafted in National Pro Fastpitch.
“Megan didn’t see much action in her rookie year but, and we expect the home town girl to demonstrate her college power hitting ability and help us win some games in 2016,” said GM Kevin Shelton. “We are going to need her contributions this summer.”
