Bevans joins MSR college softball league

Monika Bevans, a freshman at Kirkwood and a former star at Solon High  School, has joined the new Iowa Women's Softball League that will begin play this May.

Bevans, a catcher and third baseman, is the 17th collegiate player to join the league, which is being formed by the Metro Sports Report. She hit .507 with 12 home runs and 76 RBIs for Solon last season and helped the Spartans take third at the Class 3A state tournament.

Bevans was a first team all-state selection in 2016 and a second team all-state pick in 2015.

The Iowa Women's Softball League is geared for all college players in Iowa and for all Iowans who are competing at out-of-state schools.

The season will consist of 10 doubleheaders on Sunday afternoons next summer, beginning on Sunday, May 28 and running through Sunday, July 30. All of the games will be played at Kirkwood Community College and Coe College in Cedar Rapids, beginning at 2 p.m. each day.

The goal is to have four teams with 16 players per team.

 

Here are the 17 players who have joined so far:

1. Erin Kuba, Indian Hills (CR Jefferson)

Anyone interested in joining the league is strongly encouraged to register now and reserve a spot, even if they have not finalized their plans for next summer. The $100 player fee will be refunded if they are unable to play, with no questions asked.

The entire registration process can be handled on-line. Simply click on the link to the registration form that appears with this story.

The Metro Sports Report hopes all players will attend all of the games, but the company will certainly understand if a player needs to miss a few games due to a job commitment, family function, vacation or any other reason.

The league will use a continuous batting order with free defensive substitution, to make sure the playing time is as equal as possible for everyone.
