Urbana University has again tapped into Benjamin Logan for a local softball standout.
Melina Hilty became the third Ben Logan softball player in two years to sign with the Blue Knights when she officially decided to attend UU last week.
“I visited a lot of schools, and I kept coming back to Urbana,” said Hilty. “They have a beautiful campus and it is close to home so I will be able to see my parents a lot. I also like that you get a lot of 1-on-1 time with the professors.”
An added bonus is being able to play with two of her high school teammates.
At Urbana, Hilty will join 2012 Ben Logan graduate Sierra Cronkleton and current teammate Courtney Stewart, who also plans to play softball for the Blue Knights.
