@LATechSB Signs Four in Early Period

Nov. 8, 2017

RUSTON – Louisiana Tech head coach Mark Montgomery announced Wednesday that the Lady Techster softball program added four signees to national letters of intent.

Lindsay Edwards (Plano, Texas/Plano Senior HS), Hannah Koenig (Brentwood, Tennessee/Brentwood HS), Meghan Robicheaux (Broussard, La./Catholic HS) and Mia Voges (Las Vegas, Nevada/Shadow Ridge HS) all signed their NLI’s on the first day of the early signing period.

“Although not a large class, we are extremely excited about this class and the impact we feel it will have on our program,” said Montgomery.

Edwards is an infielder from Plano Senior High School who becomes the first top 50 player signed in modern day Lady Techster softball history. She batted .438 as a junior with 46 hits, 15 doubles, 30 RBI and three home runs.

“Lindsey is big time,” said Montgomery. “She is rock steady at defense playing primarily third base, but is a consistent hitter for both power and average.”

Edwards is a three-time District 6-6A performer who was named the district Catcher of the Year in 2016 and Infielder of the Year in 2017. She was also named to the DFW All-Metroplex team by the Dallas Morning News the past two seasons.

“I chose Louisiana Tech because of the hometown feeling the University gives me,” said Edwards. “I love how close it is so my parents can come watch games during season. I love the coaches, and the players are always so welcoming every time I visit.”

Koenig is a pitcher from Brentwood High School in Tennessee. She helped lead the Bruins to the district and regional title and an appearance in the state tournament as a junior. She registered a 28-9-2 record with a 1.37 earned run average and 214 strikeouts last season.

“Hannah is one of the sweetest girls you will ever meet, but in the circle she is a fierce competitor,” said Montgomery. “She throws hard and has great command of several pitches.”

 

 

She was named the District 11-3A Pitcher of the Year as a sophomore and MVP as a junior. Koenig also earned first team all-state honors by the Tennessee Softball Coaches Association and all-midstate honors as a junior. She was named the Wilco Softball Player of the Year.

“I love the atmosphere of the school,” said Koenig. “I cannot say enough about the coaching staff and how welcomed I feel by the other players and recruits. Louisiana Tech is a great school. Both of my parents graduated from Tech. I hope to carry on the Koenig family tradition there.”

Like her future teammate Koenig, Robicheaux has family ties to Louisiana Tech. The shortstop out of Catholic High School in New Iberia is the niece of former Lady Techster basketball player and legendary college and professional coach Mickie DeMoss. During her time at Catholic, she has led the Panthers to the district title in 2014, 2016 and 2017. As a junior she batted .554 with 22 doubles, 40 RBI and 34 runs.

“She is a middle infielder that hits with tremendous power,” said Montgomery. “She is a very fluid fielder with a big-time arm.”

Robicheaux is a two-time all-state honoree and a 4-time first team all-district honoree. She has been named to the Best of the Teche team four times and the all-Acadiana team three times. She also plays soccer and runs track for her high school.

“Playing collegiate softball has always been my dream and Louisiana Tech offered everything I wanted in a college,” said Robicheaux. “They have a great campus atmosphere, first-rate academics, and a tremendous softball program. I’m excited about my opportunity to contribute to the team.”

Voges is a pitcher from Shadow Ridge High School in Nevada. She led the Mustangs to the 2016 district title while recording a 5-1 record with a 2.49 earned run average and four shutouts in the circle. Offensively, she batted .458 with 12 RBI.

“Mia can pitch with both power and finesse,” said Montgomery. “She has great movement and such a tremendous demeanor in the circle.”

Voges is a two-time all-conference honoree and two-time Division I Sunset League member. She is a member of the National Honor Society.

“I chose Louisiana Tech because of the welcoming attitude and its wonderful reputation,” said Voges. “The Lady Techsters and the coaching staff are very committed and have amazing work ethic. LA Tech provides phenomenal academic growth opportunities that support my desire to study sports medicine. I am excited to begin my four years.”
