AUM adds P/2B to signing class

The Auburn University at Montgomery softball team and head coach Chris Wilcoxson has announced the signing of Haley Johnson, a pitcher and second baseman, to scholarship papers for the 2011-12 season.

Johnson, a former three-time all-state performer at Edgewood Academy, has spent the past two seasons at Central Alabama Community College in Alexander City, Ala., where she helped the Trojans to a combined 99-19 record.

"We are excited to add a player like Haley to our program," Wilcoxson said. "She will be able to provide a presence both in the circle and at the plate. Haley is a proven winner and will be an excellent representation of AUM on the field, in the classroom and in the community."

During her tenure with the Trojans, Johnson appeared in 107 games and was a dual-threat player.

As a sophomore, she posted a 23-3 record and a 1.65 earned run average in the circle, while also hitting .327, with 10 home runs, 19 doubles and 41 runs batted in. She was an Alabama Community College Conference All-Region selection and was named the Most Valuable Player of the ACCC Tournament.

In her first season at CACC, Johnson was an First-Team All-Central League honoree after finishing the year 20-6 with a 1.16 earned run average and posting a .324 batting average in 53 games.

Johnson joined the Trojans following a decorated prep career at Edgewood, where she was an all-state selection as a freshman, junior and senior. She finished her senior season with a 12-5 record, a 1.49 ERA and two saves, while limiting opponents to hit just .186 against her. She also tallied a .480 batting average at the plate, posting 82 hits, including 15 doubles and seven triples, while driving in 33 runs and scoring 41 more. Following her senior season she was selected to the Montgomery Advertiser All-Metro Team and the Wetumpka Herald Diamond Dozen squad.
