Kelsey Buechler batted .429 last year for Ironwood Ridge and figures to be a major force for Rich Alday and the Nighthawks this coming spring.

Buechler originally committed to play for Fort Lewis, but a coaching change allowed her family to explore different options. According to her mother Dee, Kelsey was invited to a camp offered by the Colorado School of Mines located in Golden, Colorado in August.

Buechler committed this weekend.
