UNC Pembroke head softball coach Steve Johnson has signed three new players: Carissa Dancer, Christy Freeland and Courtney Hill to national letters of intent for the 2007-08 school year.
“We're very excited about all three of these student-athletes,”said Johnson.“This is the most athletic group we have signed here during my  time. Each of these student-athletes can play multiple positions for us.”            
Dancer, an infielder from Hayesville, N.C., plays for Hayesville High School. During her junior season, Dancer hit .593 while also turning in a .630 on-base percentage.
She also earned all-conference honors, was a NCHSAA scholar-athlete and won the outstanding player award.            
“Carissa will bring a lot of speed and another left-handed bat to our line-up,” Johnson said.
Freeland, an outfielder from Asheville, N.C., plays for Enka High School. She hit .390 with five home runs while earning a .900 fielding percentage as a junior.             
“Christy is a pure athlete who can go out and play pretty much anywhere on the field,” added Johnson.            
Hill, a 5-10 infielder from Goldsboro, N.C., plays at Rosewood High School. Hill hit .340 while earning  All-Conference and All-Area Honorable Mentions as a junior.
She also garnered an on-base percentage of .364.            

“Courtney is a strong hitter who will be counted on to use her size and strength at the plate,” Johnson said.            —UNCP
