INDIANAPOLIS – The Marian softball team has signed Lanie Horen, a transfer student from Indiana State. Horen graduated from Franklin Central High School and will play in the outfield for the Knights.
Horen had a career batting average of .381 with 98 hits, 75 runs, and was 19-for-21 in stolen bases. Last year she hit .449 with 48 hits and 32 runs and led Franklin Central to a 23-6 record. Her teams were a combined 74-16 during her career.
"We are excited to pick up a Division I transfer at the semester who is eligible to play this spring," said head coach Scott Fleming. "Lanie loves to play the game and is a tough, talented player who is a great addition to Marian and our team. She gets on base, covers a lot of ground in the outfield, and has a strong arm. She has been well coached in high school and travel. Lanie is also an excellent student."
Horen plans to major in business.
