MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. - Central Michigan field hockey coach Molly Pelowski has announced the signing of four players to National Letters of Intent.
The quartet represents a wide variety of geographic locations from California to Colorado to Michigan and to Virginia.
It is Pelowski's second recruiting class at CMU.
"I'm really excited about this class," she said. "What I like about them and their styles of play is that they are very skilled hockey players and they're strong academically.
