Rushing joins IWSL for 2018

Another former all-state player has joined the Iowa Women's Softball League for the 2018 campaign.

Megan Rushing, who starred at West Des Moines Valley, has become the 22nd player to join the IWSL for next summer.

Rushing, an infielder, helped West Des Moines Valley place third at the Class 5A state tournament in 2015 as a senior.

Rushing played junior college softball at DMACC the last two seasons, where she belted 21 home runs and drove in 93 runs in two years. She  helped the Bears make two trips to the NJCAA Division II national  tournament and twice was named to the all-region teams.

Rushing is currently a junior at South Dakota University, which competes at the NCAA Division I level in the Summit League.


Rushing plans to play in the new Central Division in the IWSL next summer, with games at Simpson College and the Iowa State University recreation field.

Rushing is the eighth player to enroll in the Central Division. Fourteen players have enrolled in the Eastern Division in Cedar Rapids.

The Iowa Women's Softball League was created by the Metro Sports Report to give college players a summer league of their own. It is the only collegiate fast-pitch summer league in Iowa.

There will be a series of eight Sunday doubleheaders in June and July  for a 16-game season. The player fee is $100 and may be paid through  PayPal.
