Alice Lloyd College Head Softball Coach John Mills and Assistant Coach Chris Slone have announced the signing of North Laurel standout Kristin Fields for the 2012-13 Season. Fields is an excellent player who brings an impressive résumé to the Lady Eagles’ program. In 2011, Fields played in 39 games. Last season at the plate, she maintained a solid .357 batting average and .388 on-base percentage. She also added 18 RBIs on 40 hits. She is known for her steady hitting and solid defense. Fields has helped lead North Laurel to three state tournament appearances. Last year, she was also a member of the East Junior All-Star Softball team. Fields is definitely looking forward to becoming a part of the Lady Eagles squad: “My expectations for ALC softball on the field are that no matter what we’ll always play as a team and never get down on ourselves. We’ll need to always stay positive! My expectations off the field are that we’ll contribute to the college and the community any way we can. I also expect my team to be respectable women that any young girl can look up to.” About Fields, Coach Mills said, “She is a very skilled player who brings a lot of things to the team that will only strengthen us. We are extremely happy to have her as a member of the Eagles family!” Fields is also a solid student who maintains a 3.0 GPA. She plans on majoring in biology.
