North pitcher Schmidt inks with Owls

Taylor Schmidt of North Medford High has signed a letter of intent to play softball for Oregon Tech.

The senior Schmidt was a second-team all-Southwest Conference pitcher last season. She had a 2.07 ERA, recorded 157 strikeouts in 132 innings and only walked 26 batters on the year.

Schmidt batted .462 with four doubles and three triples in 2008.

Last season, for the Oregon Reign-Gold summer team, Schmidt was 25-7, including 236 strikeouts and a 1.29 ERA. She batted .417 with 10 doubles.

"We are extremely excited to sign a player of Taylor's ability, both as a pitcher and a hitter," Owls coach Greg Stewart said in a release. "She will be another freshman for us next year who will make an immediate impact. Taylor has all the tools to be an outstanding four-year player in our program and in the Cascade Conference."
