Lady ‘Runner Softball Signs Three For 2017


Angelina College’s Lady Roadrunner softball program on Friday inked three players guaranteed to contribute some bat pop when their time comes in 2017.

Coming off a season in which the Lady ‘Runners broke the team record for home runs in a season with 62 – after setting the previous record of 61 in 2014 – AC is already reloading for the 2017 campaign.

Taylor Langgenhager, a hard-hitting catcher from James Bowie High School in Austin, was a 1st Team All-District selection in District 15-5A in both 2013 and 2014.

Ashley Hallmark of Burnet High School in Burnett has hit for a .350 batting average in her two-year varsity career, posting an on-base percentage of .424. Hallmark earned 2nd Team All-District honors for District 25-4A in both 2014 and 2015.

Reygan White, a catcher/first baseman, played on the Barbers Hill High School team that went 32-0 in the 2014 regular season before falling in the state semifinals. White earned 2nd Team All-District honors in District 21-5A in 2015, leading the Lady Eagles to a 15-0 record in district play.

AC’s ladies hit the diamond to open the regular season on January 29 as participants in the Coastal Bend Tournament in Beeville. The Lady ‘Runners will host their first home game on Wednesday, Feb. 3 against Temple College.
